My mum's flight was postponed due to bad weather conditions so she couldn't make it for Christmas. She's currently in Milano, staying at my aunt and hopefully she's taking a train to Strasbourg tomorrow. We still don't know about that, so fingers crossed !
I've never had a super fancy Christmas, but this one was the loneliest of my life.
This year's Christmas eve found my family's members spread in different corners of the world. Ironic, cause the well know expression goes "Natale con i tuoi, Pasqua con chi vuoi".
However, we stayed home, ate dinner and watched TV.
And no turkey, of course. (Woohoo!, my first Christmas as a vegetarian :D)
As you may know (or you may not), Strasbourg is the Capital of Christmas.
Well, there's finally something on the bright side of "Not going home for Christmas".
I know it's sad (I'm not a heartless person) but mom is coming for a visit so Strasbourg will feel like home for a while. :) Remember, home is wherever mom is.
Anyway, if you're following me on Instagram, you would know that like two days ago, 11/29 to be more precise, the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony took place and the 443rd Marché de Noël started.
I took some pictures today to share with you my pre-Christmas-ish winter days.. Don't judge, it was so crowded and that's the best I could do.
