Anyone else feel like the Christmas season is just rushing by?! I feel like if I blink once, I’ll miss it. I’ve looked forward to Christmas all year – the lights, the tree, the shiny ornaments, Schmalzkuchen, gingerbread, and the stockings. It’s my favorite! And it’s even more special to be experiencing that while my little one kicks around inside. I feel so very blessed.
But still, we’ve got less than 2 weeks now until The Big Day. (And that day before The Big Day that the Germans all like to think is the main event. I’m just lucky I get two special days of Christmas…three if you count “the second Christmas Day,” as the Germans call it…also known as December 26th.
It all goes by so fast! This weekend will be busy, too. I’m looking forward to the company Christmas party tonight. There’ll be steak, lots of singing and joke-telling, and lots of drinking. Not for me, of course, but it might be fun to be one of the few sober ones there. Ha!
Tomorrow Tobias is playing cello in Bach’s Weihnachtsoratorium (Christmas Oratorio) out in Elmshorn, and I’m planning on going to that. It will be lovely!
