The wait

It is the beautiful task of Advent to awaken in all of us memories of goodness and thus to open doors of hope. – Pope Benedict XVI

I love December and Advent, almost more than I love Christmas Eve. There is something magical about the wait, the build up until Christmas Day. Already on the first day of December I felt full of Christmas Spirit. I was so excited I even changed to our Santa bed sheets and put my holiday PJ’s on. Being used to the cold Advent in Norway, my Christmas Spirit decreased as I went on a week long vacation to hot, beautiful Zanzibar. But I regained it as I came back to my home being fully decorated in red, the snow falling from the sky and the ground covered in white. I am now looking forward to shopping for Christmas gifts, having a Christmas photoshoot, eating fat and delicious Christmas food  and making people pretty for the Christmas parties.
