How many of you will spend Christmas away from your family? Many of you will spend it with your relatives. Very few instead away from home. The saying says: “At Christmas with your (parents) and at Easter with the people you want”.
When December starts the countdown for Christmas and New Year’s event starts automatically.
The days are short and the sky darkens early. The cold forces us to wear sweaters and coats, and when we walk around the shops, the windows are gorgeous.
I have always wanted to spend a Christmas away from home, and therefore far from everything that characterizes the Christmas holidays: money, gifts, consumerism, food etc …
Christmas is increasingly synonymous with consumerism but I don’t know if it is synonymous with happiness. I admire those people who volunteer on Christmas and later, delivering gifts on the streets or assisting Needy Children.
Schools begin like every year … and all (or almost) students would like to be still in full summer… that dream of an endless summer.
After more than a decade that I have finished high school I often have the nightmare of having returned to schools … a constant “dream” in which I believe I have been rejected or be back with my studies.
It is paradoxical but I have no nostalgia for school years … perhaps only for university years where perhaps I regret not having managed the time between study and fun in the best possible way.
I am convinced that this world does not allow us to long regret childhood times, which are only affected by predistination. Our youth is more sacred than any loss of fate. My thinking is very difficult to believe but it is also the best way to take behind – though only a part of it – the past.
