Are days like the Santa Clause Day today a duty or fun. Do u do a party and the children laugh or do You hate those days. Do You wanna cancel Xmas and Easter out of the calendar or are those special fun days? Is a party a relict from the last century for old people?
Sometimes I think I would prefer to get rid of those holidays like Christmas. Frankly speaking they cause too much stress, probably at the end more stress than joy. It is certainly our own fault that we expect too much from it and actually more and more every year. We spend too much money on things nobody needs.
But there are also moments and aspects I like, like being together with my wife in the kitchen during weekend baking cookies, family meetings or providing a little present on Santa Claus Day.
I like the holidays but unfortunately for those who are working overseas like me don't have time to celebrate it with our family back home. And also that day is not holiday where I work so we do not have any choice but to come to work. But I would like to celebrate it with my family if I have given a chance.
How do You celebrate overseas? Nowadays there is christmas also in China or Afrika or Singapure.
Just a simple meal that's all just like any other ordinary days after office hours.
