I’ve now bought some Christmas “accessories” such as Christmas cards (these will be sent all over the world), some candy cane wrapping paper and red ribbons. And that’s when I felt it… BAM! Christmas is actually here!
I also bought one of the presents I intend to give to Hannes. The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. I know he’s been wanting to read it, since, well, it’s one of the best books ever written.
