The Real Christmas is What You Grew Up With

I've spent 3 Christmas's in the last 4 years abroad - away from home. And not a single one of them felt like "real Christmas" (especially when its like +25 outside!). All the elements were there - food, presents, Christmas tree, music, good people. But still. So I guess nothing can be an equally good substitute to a Christmas that you grew up with. We have this emotional stamp in the brain, formed in the childhood when Christmas was so very exciting.

So next year Im going to spend Christmas at home again to experience that sweet emotion that I consider Christmas feeling.
