As the days grow shorter and temperatures fall, your lungs fill with cold, crisp air as you step out into the clear and bright starry night. The soft twinkle of carefully strung fairy lights leads the way through the darkness, guiding us home. The sounds of snow crunching underfoot breaks the soft silence of a world transformed into a winter wonderland, and as our breath forms clouds around us, we know that comforting, crackling fires await to warm our numb cheeks and fingers.
Christmas is more than just a season – it’s a feeling of togetherness. For a moment, we stop thinking about the future and instead escape into a world devoted to nostalgia, myth and legend. Together with our loved ones, we practice carefully preserved traditions and rituals, creating long-lasting memories that we pass down through generations. Small and large hands transform simple household materials into magical creations, creativity unfolding through cutting, folding and gluing while familiar songs play in the background and favourite stories are shared. We gather around the dinner table, thoughtfully set with inherited heirlooms and our favourite tableware, to a feast of grandma’s family recipe – purposefully prepared just once a year. While the diffused light from lit candles dance on the walls and faces of family and friends, little eyes brim with excitement, anxiously awaiting to unwrap the carefully selected gifts tucked safely beneath the Christmas tree. These are small pieces of magic that evoke the spirit of Christmas in each of us.
Wishing you a merry, joyful Christmas.
