Christmas in Strasbourg

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)

Capitale de Noël

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.

1 year TPB

One year ago, I would post my very first blogpost, totally unaware I was creating so a virtual spot where I would post my thoughts, ideas, desires and things I like and love. 
After one whole year, I'm really satisfied with my TPB's progress. This blog came out of nowhere, totally par hasard, but now it's like family to me :)
So yeah, I woke up this morning and had Breakfast at Pomegranates. I even made a heart shaped cake out of crepes and blew a candle, wishing lots of other happy years to come to my sweet pome!

Mild winter days in Stras

Sunny days are getting rare in Strasbourg, and they're instead replaced by windy, cold and rainy ones, sometimes all together in one. So when you wake up on sunny day and it's Saturday, there's no way you're spending it inside the house.
I totally ignored the wind and the low temperatures, as long as the sky was clear and the sun was shining above us!
And yay, Christmas decorations are coming :)

Lonely Halloween

Before I go any further, Happy Halloween everyone :)

So yeah, this is the first Halloween from since I can't remember, that I won't celebrate.. 
Back in Albania, I would celebrate it with my best friend every single year, we would dress up, go to parties and make tones of pictures.. Well, I was expecting more Halloween enthusiasm here and I am kinda disappointed.
Actualy it was mummy's birthday, which happens to be in the same day, that reminded me of this fest. Otherwise, it would have totally skiped my mind!

Halloween could't change my routine today, woke up early, got out and turned back again home at about 6:00 PM, tired and hungry.. but with a tinny pumpkin and some candles I bought on my way home.
I know I'm late for that, but hey, at least I tried. It's something and it's better than nothing. 
I'm also trying to find some guts to watch a horror movie.. Well, feels like Halloween already..

However, I hope you've all had a much nicer Halloween, the best of your life :)
