Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope everyone had a love and food filled Holiday. I spent a slightly different Christmas than we usually do. My mom and I spent the night in Turku in a hotell. It's a 2,5 hour drive from home.
This is how I spent the days before Christmas, from buying the christmas tree to decorating it, packing packages and of course making gingerbread cookies. And decorating them as well.
We arrived in Turku on Christmas Eve and had dinner at the hotell. One of the best services and food I've had in awhile. They had all the food and desserts you can imagine eating during Christmas. Very pleased with it. And of course I eat way to much than I should have. After dinner we went and walked by the Aura - river that passes trough Turku.
As I've stated before Christmas is one of my favourite holidays, just with all the lights and the importance of being together with loved ones.
One of my favourite parts was this bridge that was full with trees on both sides and lights. And if that wasn't enough there were lights that changed color and at some points you could hear wolves howling. I fell in love with that bridge and we stayed there with mom for a good 20 minutes for sure.
But now it's the sad part with Christmas ending, until next year. Now it's time for New Years celebrations and reflecting on the year that has passed. Also this year it's my turn to host the New Years get-together in our friend group. Excited for that!
