Autumn is a beautiful time, but as time goes on, it gets darker and sadder, day by day.
Why should one rejoice in the celebrations, that is.
For my own part is november rescued by, that I have birthday. Not just A day but a whole week. I've been implemented the concept of 'fødselsdagsuge'.
It goes out of there 3-4 days before the big real day started out with some small gifts. A small flower, coffee on the bed, etc. It grows as day-to-day, the great day arrives. But more importantly: There's probably nothing worse than waking up the day after the birthday and find that not only are you become a year older, but there is also no festivities.
So it's wonderful that there are still three days, when one slowly steps down to the everyday life, feel the pampering continues for a bit yet. Invited still little guests, and the feast lasts.
so far, So good, it is indeed a private way to keep november out on.
But when I look at everything else that's going on, I am more reticent.
It starts with halloween, which is really a beautiful memorial of the dead. It has changed to be something else. Pumpkins all over the place. And good enough with it. Even for the most perverse talk on food waste, because we don't orcs eat all the pumpkins afterwards. The kids knocking on the door and yell, "candy or trouble.."
that Also is cosy. Although they look very dangerous. So peace be with halloween, it was so accustomed to.
But see whether or not we have also now got the 'Singles Day', where we can indulge ourselves, if we are without a girlfriend for the time being. And we have also earned.
It is well ok, that one can buy some of his christmas gifts or another, you still must have, at a good price. But it requires a man to keep up with everything here.
And now the black Friday be so, but faith is not, then the parties over, for already a few days ago I got the first advertisement from a company that wanted to make you aware that now it was soon 'Thanksgiving Day', and I should not just buy any clothes also in the rise???
And wait me, if not kalkunproducenterne vejrer mornings, so we can all buy the big birds, like the americans do, to celebrate THEIR big party.
Keep quite k....
In more than a month, we have been able to buy mouthwatering culinary delights in the Net, and I think gingerbread, brown cakes, christmas decorations and everything christmas.
And so begins december. With the Sundays in Brugsen, which has distributed scratch cards so we can purchase extra into the 1. december.
And then running it away. I æælsker christmas. And the new year. For the new purchases.
But what about January? Then for the heck not have the opportunity to get some of these events moved to the rædsomme month, which really ought to be deductible in Tax?
Or are we again pushing us off until February brings Valentines Day, also a blessing from the american culture. So we need to buy in again. We just need to remember that we should not be single, for otherwise every night no gifts this time.
