It’s Not This Time of Year Without…

It’s not this time of the year without a Christmas tree.

I’ve never had a Christmas without a Christmas tree. My mom always made sure we had a beautiful tree, wether it was small, big, real or plastic and I carried that with me when I moved to Barcelona. We’ve been here for three years now and I’ve put up a tree every year!

I was just telling hubby the other day about it. Back at my home in Venezuela, I remember grabbing my iPod, a blanket and laying on the cozy couch to watch the fireplace and our Christmas tree for hours while listening to music. It was one of my favorite things to do.

I love putting up the Christmas tree! It’s a happy day for me and It definitely wouldn’t feel this time of the year without one :).

Christmas Time

I love Christmas! Since I can remember, for me, it’s time of delicious food (lots of it), lights, music and family. I have my parents to thank for that, they always made sure Christmas was awesome and beautiful. And happily for me, my parents came to Barcelona for the Holidays. So, besides that, this is my first Christmas in my own apartment, with my hubby in a new country! There are so many new things!

Everything about Christmas time is different. The food is special, the color of the light changes and everything smells sweet. It’s a beautiful time to take lots of pictures. There are so many things that we can only see during this time, is a must to take our cameras with us at all times. I’ve taken lots of photos lately, but sometimes I’m so amazed by the things around me I just stay there with my eyes wide open fearing I might miss something. Here are some of my favorites so far!

The trees change color and the leaves keep falling, sticking to the ground. There are Christmas markets in almost every square and you can hear music dancing through the air. Lights decorations are the main event in the streets and building compete for attention. It’s time of presents, delicious food and  pictures :).
