Christmas we know, is always Christmas! So they said to me my dear grandparents. But this year, however, at least for me, Christmas will be not with a taste festive, as it was in years past, as there were, especially in the last period some things relating to my health condition, which lead me to spend this holy feast in an atmosphere almost of sadness! What you can see in the picture, it is the tree decorated by my brother, he wanted to do it alone. Something very strange because he is a person very "lazy"! However, I must admit that he did so with the right criterion by decoration of festoons and twinkling lights. What will we find there, the day of the Nativity (December 25)? Well, no one knows yet for sure. But I can not give anything to anyone, I'm sorry, I foolishly have thrown away all my balances. But this may, however will be forgotten, it is important not to repeat it in the future! Picture taken by me

It's a nice little tree, Christmas is an important celebration and it's nice to have the house decorated. I know that you do not feel well, but I sincerely hope that you can have a nice Christmas.

You will probably enjoy Christmas much more than you are expecting. It is easy to be disappointed when we are looking forward with excitement to something but the opposite is also true. The tree looks really cute and much better than some big ones with hardly anything at all hanging on them.

My daughter-in-law is Italian-Canadian. I am a Filipino-Canadian. Italians and Filipinos have many things in common. One is - - we are catholics . . .

Your brother did a good job decorating the tree. I'm sorry this Christmas is sad for you. I know it is the loss of your grandmother that brings this sadness to you. Though sad, I hope you find the love and thoughtfulness of others across your path this Christmas.
