The weather is getting colder, the trees are turning bare and our surroundings are turning grey. With chilled fingers and red noses, we retreat into our homes. We light the candles, put the food on the table and get ready for the holidays surrounded by nostalgia.
Bright colours and cheerful elements dominate. Decorations are brought out again - some homemade by the little ones and others handed down from generation to generation - woven, knitted or crocheted. We open our homes to family and friends; we eat together; we exchange gifts; we tell everyone one more time what they mean to us. Yes, bring on that Christmas spirit.
