Same as many of you,, I am a huge Christmas fan :)* I start counting down every year from October. When people start putting up Christmas decos after Halloween,, I would been thinking what to get for my families and friends already. And I still put Christmas stocking up now even though I know mum is the Santa :) So I guess I am qualified as a Christmas nerd ;)
I could still remember when I was about 12 or 13,, I sent a letter to Santa Claus - telling him what I want for Christmas. And SURPRISINGLY,, I got a reply. It was a Christmas card. When I turned to the back of the card,, there was a print logo saying - HONG KONG POST OFFICE. haha. Thanks to HK Post Office. I have to say it is a really sweet thing to do!
Last year I was spending Christmas in Hong Kong and I did this thing with my best friend. We went through half of the Hong Kong to do Christmas Trees Hunting :)* We took pictures together with the Christmas Trees we have found. We walked without any directions. We sat down in a cafe to drink a coffee and have a tiramisu when we were tired and then we carried out finding trees again! :) It was a really fun and sweet thing to do! Go try it and get the festive atmosphere :)

So this weekend is boyfriend's birthday weekend! so gotta leave town for the weekend - gonna go for a little birthday trip (it's a secret trip so he doesn't know where we are going). Yea, so hopefully I will get to take more christmasy pictures to share :) So for now,, let me show you my Advent Calendar this year! I love this so much! It is something away from traditional and it is really fun!
This is a Dream Snow Pop-Up Advent Calendar by Eric Carle. So I get to open a window each day to reveal a new decoration to add to the Christmas Tree and there are some for you to put inside those gift boxes too! So by the time Christmas Day arrives I'll have a very dreamy Christmas scene! :)*
with love,, es.
