christmas vacation - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
It was only a few miles down the coast, a simple cottage with a view of the ocean, but it was our Christmas vacation and we loved it. We had no flights, no expensive transit. We arrived feeling fresh and got to relaxing right away, to being able to spend time together for real instead of living our lives though some Hollywood lens.
Christmas vacation was about home-cooking and living with simple expectations. We wanted good food, but more than that we wanted to feel relaxed at home. So first thing we did was clean the house together, so it wasn't just on one person to do. That was the start of feeling as if we were "team Christmas." Then we talked about our favourite recipes, made a shortlist and went shopping for ingredients. Each meal we cooked in teams, for the cooking and the cleaning. I gotta say, it felt so good because it was organised and we all knew what we were going to give our ourselves and when we could put our feet up.
Living in the Swiss Alps as we do, Christmas vacation is all about the skiing, the warm food and the hot chocolates.
I guess it's ideal to spend Christmas vacation at home, to relax and enjoy the space you live in with those you love. But what if you live far from the one you love? What then? Perhaps then you need to hop on a flight and go where the heart leads.
