This year, Christmas days are under restrictions and challenges. A lot of people complains about not sharing these days with their families. But Christmas doesn’t have to be about families.
A lot of people complains these days about not buying the presents, the special food and drinks they want to share with their relatives. But Christmas doesn’t have to be about consumerism.
Maybe, despite all the restrictions and challenges, we have discovered another way of enjoying and sharing these days, without flying to far countries, without spending a lot of money in presents we don’t need, without losing many hours in traffic jams towards crowded ski resorts.
Maybe we have discovered that we can spend some time in a local woodland, sharing the stroll with our loved ones, looking how the birds facing up to the winter, or just greeting the people locked on nursing homes…
May be we’ll discover the stillness, and we’ll learn to enjoy the depths of a silent winter.
Wishing you all the best for 2021.
