When it comes to festivities, I come a lot closer to the Grinch than to the Easter Bunny. I've always dreamt of being a rockstar, unfortunatelly I have no musical talent whatsoever. So I thought that I'll just be moody and I'll stop ironing my clothes.
My friends know me for being a non-conformist and I try to stick to that image even when it comes to celebrations, because let's face it - celebrating Christmas is pretty mainstream. Initially, everything was going according to the plan - I didn't get a Christmas tree, I ate no ginger cookies and finally - I packed my bags and headed to Amsterdam. This is when the carefully crafted plan crashed and burned. To be honest, I've never seen Amsterdam this beautiful. All the lights, reindeers and fake Santas touched a soft spot and before I knew it, I was reaching out for my camera. Call it "mob mentality" - seeing all these people, rushing to buy their gifts, happilly clutching their shopping bags or cups of warm coffeee, sweapt me off my feet and once again I was a little girl and I was thinking "Oh what the heck, I love Christmas". Something I hadn't felt in a very very long time.
How are you spending this time of the year?
