Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

"Wake up, wake up" my nephew squeals, "Santa has already been in the house!" Drowsily I open one eye, only to be almost blinded by my sparkling heels which are already waiting to shine for the big night. Right! It's Christmas today, and the kids must have discovered the tree the adults had decorated (a dear tradition which we celebrate on the night of the 23rd). The house is already buzzing like a beehive. Mom is fumbling in the kitchen (rattling pots and dinner is already smelling delicious), lovely sis (already in festive clothes and haha! can you believe it: heels!) has decorated everything with glitter, cookies and biscuits (there goes my tight outfit).

Before everything will go quiet (aka everybody waiting for the bell to ring so we can storm into the living room) the kids will be taken outside for a Xmas walk, my brother in law will pop champagne, the grandparents will arrange the presents, and BF will shake his head with a mild smile at this bunch of crazy (and very excited) Austrians. But hello! It's Christmas Eve, it's family (read all hugs and kisses) and am loving everything, even tradition of croaking Christmas songs together.

I hope you'll all be enjoying the celebrations as well, being kind for one another, and never forgetting the most perfect gift: a happy smile (OK, the odd heel counts too.)

Merry Christmas everyone!

Weird Traditions (part one)

Weird Traditions (part one)

With Christmas looming, weird traditions all over the world are in full swing. Today the Dutch celebrate their version of "Saint Nicholas": Sinterklaas, and they're crazy about it. Their version of the saint coming to town is celebrated with a big parade when he arrives on a steamboat from Spain (erg... SPAIN? The only thing I know coming from Spain is ZARA man, not a beardy old dude). With his horse (Vespucci) and a rather scary black man (zwarte Piet) in tow (who causes a discussion about racism every year - isn't slavery soooo 1775?) he gallops over the roofs at night, delivering presents through the chimney: mainly very fattening stuff (more "sin" than "sint" if you ask me...).

Can only hope Sinterklaas knows I'm still dieting (hello, still have 26 days of blogging left...) and will be thoughtful enough to bring me something with an inch (actually 10 inches will do).

But anyway, a good party is a good party, right - it would be a missed heel opportunity not to play along and celebrate as well. My shoes are totally ready for it.
P.S.: The Dutch are crazy.
