3. Your earliest Christmas memory

I was a little girl, on the age of 5, when my grandma, my aunt and I visited the Christmas service at church and walked back home for the presents.
I always loved snow and couldn’t go home right away. So I started to build a little snowman in front of our house. And he couldn’t have been very big, but it lasted like 20 minutes for me to finish, while my grandma and aunt waited for me in the cold. They couldn’t persuaded me to go inside and as we went there against my will, I cried the whole way.
But the rest of the evening was in spite of it all very nice and a beautiful Christmas eve.

By writing this story I just noticed that I have another first memory of Christmas. That was when Santa came into the house of my grandparents and wanted to give us kids our presents.
Unfortunately my little baby cousin first started crying when he saw the old man with the (really bad and terrifying!!!) Santa mask. And because I am really empathic I started crying too. And I insulted him a little bit :) But I really just wanted him to go home, because we were afraid :D

6. Santa believer? Why or why not?

I am too old to believe in Santa (and maybe I feared him a little bit when I was younger :D) so I don’t believe in Santa.

12. Your family Christmas traditions

Sadly we don’t have any nice traditions.
We just go to service, then eat together and after that we hand out the presents, we got for the other. The rest of the evening we sit together with my uncle and my granddad.
But I like the tradition to sing Christmas songs together or read stories or poems.

13. The best gift ever received

The Nintendo DS game which I couldn’t have because I had no Nintendo 3DS, so I was sad and never wished for it, but my granddad got it for me. It was a big surprise!

14. One Christmas wish

Like every year – peace on earth.
I hope that someday people live together in peace without fear and tears.
No one should be in a position where the only hope he has is to flee and search peace in a place he is not welcome and people disrespect him. No one leaves everything behind them, if it is not truly necessary for surviving. And our generation should be more generous and give aid to everyone who needs it.
We are all just guests on this earth and we’re obliged to make the best of our – and other peoples time here.
