Getting Ready for Natale

We have almost a full week of festivities this year:

December 25, Wednesday Christmas + December 26 is also Saint Stephen’s Day; Friday to recuperate, and prepare for the weekend. Then a couples of days to sit down and plan the new year coming up.

Now it is the time to get ready for Xmas with:

A Xmas tree 🌲 (but without cutting down a live one);

The Xmas tree ornaments (possibly color-coded);

House with the right amount of decorations (not too cheap, but chic and recyclable);

A Christmas wreath for the door (Possibly Handmade);

A (ideally homemade) centerpiece with candles;

A beautifully table setting (with the best China, maybe cleverly mismatched);

Last minutes shopping (just to see once more the glitz, windows decorations, and the city lights);

The good smell from baking sweet things;

The perfect Xmas menu 🍗 (not too rich, low in calories, carbs and gluten);

The freshest Panettone (and a pandoro for the ones that don’t like the candies and raisins);

A thought for everyone in (perfectly wrapped) presents 🎁 ;

Well chosen music 🎶 for the mood (not the obsessive carols);

A glass of Prosecco 🍾🥂(served at the perfect temperature)

Let’s the festivities begin!

Happy holidays

I lived the most part of my life in Washington DC, now in Italy getting to know again my country. Plenty of surprises, for good and bad, and lots of nostalgia for DC.
