OKAY, is it just me or does winter not exist in California?
WELCOME TO WINTER IN CALIFORNIA
It’s December! Christmas is just a week away and I’m wearing shorts. It’s true, it gets really chilly early in the mornings and late in the evenings, but during the day it feels almost like summer.
I know all my friends in Europe are wishing we could switch places. Although it’s nice to see some sun, this weather certainly doesn’t help me get into the Christmas spirit.
I mean growing up in a place where Christmas is associated with snow and winter(real winter, like it gets cold and you have to wear scarves and gloves), it just feels odd to me.
YES! THIS WEATHER THROWS ME OFF.
I still remember last year’s winter in the Netherlands. It was so cold that I wanted to spend all of my time at home on the couch with some mint tea and a Christmasy movie playing.
Despite all that, I loved it because it felt very Christmasy.
Anyways, I’m doing my best to get into the Christmas spirit.
Every morning, I play my Christmas playlist and whenever I have time, I look up fun Christmas recipes on Pinterest. I think the only thing I’m missing is snow. Is anyone else dreaming of a white Christmas?
Okay, aside from that, all the items I’m wearing are on sale. Apparently right before Christmas is the best time to buy summer clothes. Welcome to winter in California.
Do you feel ready for Christmas? Does the weather affect your holiday mood?
