Christmas time in Catania is really nice. City is filled with lights, flowers and in the area where we live almost all balconies has light decorations and when the sun goes down it looks like a fairytale world. Christmas itself I do not like so much. Have not celebrated christmas since I have been eight and never missed it as we recieved alot of time with parents, surprice gifts and trips anyway all year around. Then been travelling in the world and lived far from family and relatives since very young age, so christmas day has always been having friends in the same boat in my home where we watch movies, eat and drink. Sometimes we had a friend who played guitar and we sang all night, Walked around in pyjamas for two day. I remember those times very warmly and miss them! This christmas I was alone. Spent alot of time and money to buy gifts to everyone (over 20 people) and noone even said Thank You. And M-I-L made a visit to comment badly my home design choices in the kitchen, So I just sent the gifts there. It is so silly. But this shop is closed now. It is the second round plus all travel gifts and birthdays. You get only a lemon face back…

Juletid i Catania ?r verkligen trevligt . Staden ?r fylld med ljus , blommor och i omr?det d?r vi bor har n?stan alla balkonger ljusdekorationer och n?r solen g?r ner ser det ut som en sagov?rld. Julen i sig jag gillar inte s? mycket. Jag har inte firat jul sedan jag varit ?tta och aldrig saknat det eftersom vi fick mycket tid med f?r?ldrarna, ?verraskningsg?vor och resor i alla fall ?ret runt. Jag har rest runt i v?rlden och levt l?ngt fr?n familj och sl?ktingar sedan mycket unga ?r, s? juldagen har alltid haft v?nner i samma b?t i mitt hem d?r vi tittat p? film, ?tit och druckit. Ibland hade vi en kompis som spelade gitarr och vi sj?ng hela natten, gick runt i pyjamas f?r tv? dagar. Jag minns den tiden mycket varmt och saknar dem! Denna jul var jag ensam, tillbringat mycket tid och pengar f?r att k?pa presenter till alla (?ver 20 personer) och ingen ens sa ens Tack. Sv?rmor gjorde ett bes?k och kommenterade d?ligt mina hemdesignval i k?ket. S? jag skickade ?ver g?vorna dit. Det ?r s? l?jligt. Men denna butik ?r st?ngd nu. Det ?r den andra omg?ngen plus alla resepresenter och f?delsedagar. Du f?r bara citronansikte tillbaka …
