“Another Christmas, home, year… and what can I say!
Somehow, removing the tree this year was very emotional.
Flashback to the past…to exactly this day.
I used to wake up early, warm the house, and start baking and cooking.
It’s an important day in our traditions, Jesus’s Baptism.
Midnight of the night before, we put a water bottle on the balcony, we make a yeast-free dough and hang it out to ferment, we fry sweets, light candles, and open doors and windows, we pray, because heaven and sky doors and open to receive out prayers as Jesus passes by every home to bless it. The next morning, we bless the house with the water, turn off the light on the Christmas tree, and pack… to another year.
I love the season, and yes, Christmas should not be a season as much as it should a spirit, I am reminiscing on a life, not a season.
Looking back, and while removing the tree, I started seeing the many trees I had removed in my life, the packing, girls playing with their christmas toys, food, and sweets backing, coffee, and visitors, ongoing…
What happened, I guess they grew, they moved on, and today is a day I missed looking at.
I always wanted a plate, and when the plate was offered, it turned out, it the pie I wanted. The pie, is the symbol of ongoing love, ongoing effort to keep the home standing, it’s the symbol of home versus house.
As we say, my mistake, I always knew a family starts with two, and a home needs love to keep warm!”
#MOI reminiscing on this exact day throughout my life, it’s time to wipe the tears, and move on.
