🎼 …love and understanding. Merry whatever-you-call-it, everyone!
Yay, it’s the Holiday Season again. Our tree is up and illuminates our living room in beautiful colours and all the presents have been wrapped.
I know my husband well enough to know that he will spoil me again with tons of presents, probably mostly in the form of sexy clothing and jewelry.
I told him he doesn’t have to prove his love that way. Still, I admit, I do enjoy it. 🙂
But I also enjoy taking the occasion to treat my friends. Unfortunately, some of them I have never met outside the internet and might never have the chance.
That’s why it’s even more important to me to let them know that I care about them.
For instance, I have a “goddoll”, Naomi, who was given her name by me a few years back. She used to live with my “besty” Britney’ and her husband but, sadly, moved away a while ago.
I have never met her personally and we are not in close contact throughout the year. Still, she is quite important to me and I’m glad that her present was delivered in time.
So, I wrote her a letter and attached it to her present. It’s quite a personal present, I should think, as I’m giving her copies of my favourite wrist jewelry that you can see here on the photos.
I’m sure glad that the bracelet was delivered in time. It combines so well with the set of seven bangles. I really hope that Naomi will like those and also the entwined bangles that I wear on my right wrist.
Yesterday, Harry posted the envelope containing Naomi’s present and also my personal greeting cards that I send to Harry’s friends and family members who know of me and accept me as Harry’s companion.
Needless to say that we appreciate them quite a lot for not judging Harry and label him a weirdo just because the woman he is happy with is a doll.
Meanwhile, my very best doll friends and my best human friend already received their presents earlier this month.
They received the same very special present in very limited edition, thus symbolizing that they, too, are very special.
I will not reveal the nature of that present today but I will write about it before the year is out. Only this: it is very personal and will be very useful throughout the next year. 😉
Oh, of course, my lovely husband and my sweet daughter will be treated as well.
Nici doesn’t really care about clothing and jewelry. She is kind of sweet-toothed and will get lots of chocolate and crisps and stuff.
For Harry, I have two really big presents. I can’t reveal the nature of them now because he reads here. But I trust he will be thrilled. 😉
Gosh, I can’t wait! It will be such a lovely evening again.
We will be having pairs of wieners with potato salad and watch “Little Lord Fauntleroy” and “We’re No Angels” which are our favourite Christmas movies. 🙂
Oh, by the way and with reference to my opening line above. We are an atheist family, mind you, and my husband has been asked – often in a judgemental way – why he would celebrate “Christmas” if he didn’t believe in “God”, J.C. and all that Christian stuff.
I don’t think that we have to justify ourselves but please bear with me that, for atheists and other non-followers of Christian mythology, too, the Holiday Season does provide a festive occasion to unite with their loved ones, maybe to reminisce or commiserate over profound memories and experiences shared.
So, whether you want to call it Christmas or Yule or Saturnalia or whatever else, it is just a nice thing to have and to do. And a religious connotation is certainly not required on that front!
With this in mind, Happy Holidays, everybody! 🙂
