Homesick


Yes, I am homesick. Just a little bit but enough for me to go onto sties and find out how even more gorgeous my city back in Europe is. Crazy, huh? Where was all this beauty when I was there? Really? Not fair. However, just thinking about the cold winter temperatures...I am happy I am in California. Thank you.

Besides this quite gorgeous ice skating rank...today, is also Santa Claus day! Yes, it is. And somehow I think it's a lot better to have this day on December 6 than having him come in for Christmas. Don't hate me now but it's just my opinion. Every year I chuckle a little just because to me, Santa Claus will be part of December 6...and so not coming through a chimney. ;) Ha! Then again, who wants such a Santa and his helpers to come in on Christmas?! I certainly don't!

Isn't Santa's helper scary?! I'm certainly no fan of his...but these helpers encouraged us to behave more, and work more on our good behavior throughout the year...otherwise Santa would know and December 6 would not be a fantastic day!

Yes I was scared of December 6. Santa and his helpers would come to school and visit classes, walk through the city, and his helpers just looked incredibly scary...especially when you are about 8 or 10 or 15 or even 25! Ha!! Worst was, when the helpers were friends of mine and waited until they'd spot me on the street...fantastic. Little Selma definitely got scared (regardless of age!). But for the record, I was never scared of Santa although he certainly had some power over me...just his helpers always caused some heavy chills.

This is the only thing I am not missing. I love the holiday season and I am quite sad I don't experience it with familiar places and with my mom whom I miss daily...but today is a day I am happy I am not walking through Luzern. Thank you! 

Happy Santa Claus Day!!!

I bet you do miss Switzerland during this time of year. Hope you can go back home and visit soon. I'm sure your mom misses you just as much girl.
