We spent Christmas in North Jutland at my uncle’s this year. In many ways it’s been a wonderful Christmas, but I’ve also had some mixed emotions. It’s the first year that my little brother (wasn’t supposed to) spend Christmas with us, and one of my best friends´ mom passed away this Christmas. It’s difficult to block out things like these, even when everything else around you is good. I was surrounded by joyful people, the food was amazing and the spirit high. But in the back of my mind, I was a little troubled and sad for my friend.
Then on Christmas Eve, my brother and sister-in-law showed up unannounced and early. They weren’t supposed to come until the day after so I was super happy that I got to spend Christmas with them after all!
