It`ll be 1.December soon, and so the preparations for Christmas are just around the corner. Though it`s normal to decorate with the colour violet up until 22. /23. December, marking Advent, this year it`ll be a mix. Yesterday I got a delayed birthday gift, which included a violet candle and beautiful violet napkins with lyrics from Silent Night, so at least I`ll be able to make an Advent statement this year. Also, my BF set up the advent-star in our living room-window a couple of days ago. It`s so beautiful when it`s dark outside. But since I`ll be celebrating Christmas with my family in Spain this year, I`ll be leaving the cold north in mid-December. So, we decided to decorate the apartment with Christmas decorations when December arrives as well.
