Have you ever spent Christmas away from home and the traditions you were used to? The first time, it doesn’t really feel like Christmas does it?
What makes Christmas special, is directly linked to the people we spend it with, the smells, the traditions, the atmosphere, the familiarity…
What Martina loves most about Christmas is the cosiness and the magic of lights and candles. She always enjoyed the old German traditions surrounding Christmas and they have become even more important now that she lives in Ireland and has her daughter to share the excitement with.
Martina’s childhood memories of Advent Sundays recount lighting the Advent candles, reading stories, drinking hot chocolate and eating freshly baked cookies. (No Christmas shopping!)
In her new home away from home, she managed to recreate her favourite Christmas feelings for her family.
I love it when parents share their childhood traditions with their children. Antonia’s memories will include a mix of Irish and German traditions which she will transmit to her own children eventually. Magic!
Preserve your family’s Christmas and Advent traditions
