After The Fantasy,The Christmas

December 25, 2015









Ho ho ho!Merry Christmas guys.I hope you're having a wonderful time and most of all,I hope you're thankful for seeing yet another one.I did the fantasy posts and wanted to end all this Christmas stuff with this post of this simple outfit.I am actually shocked at the number of red stuff I own.I had to dig deeper into my closet for some of the stuff I haven't worn in a while that's red and I found a good number.All for the season guys.
So when I was a little girl,I always understood Christmas as that time where by default my present would be a new dress,new shoes,a new hat and cute little bag all matching.These presents always got to me and the rest of the kids days in advance so we could try them on and get anything that was slightly out of place fixed ahead of a journey to our grandparents place where there would be a family gathering.Now if you're African you know how big our extended families usually are.The aim was always to eat,drink,dance and make merry on Christmas day and throughout the season and to especially stand out in your new attire.It was a Kenyan tradition for quite a while.
As we grew up,this tradition stopped as we slowly started to understand the meaning of Christmas day and season and stopped giving too much importance to material stuff.Families still get together at their ancestral homes to make merry and catch up.Lots of eating delicious food,all special dishes prepared at once for the day to be eaten after church.Of course after all that energy put into the frenzy of excitement you all go into while in church ,the singing and dancing you have to get it back somehow.
Another way people spend Christmas is going on vacations to beautiful places in our country especially to the coast.The sun is always up during this time and it's great to just enjoy the beach and everything.
The best way though is sharing with the less fortunate in society especially because in recent times the cost of living has risen so much.
Been there,done all that stuff but this year I am in good ol' Eldoret town with my family enjoying each other's company,food and the beautiful weather we have been blessed with.I am thankful that we're all together but of course my prayers and thoughts go to the rest who are not as lucky to have the much that I do because it is a season of love and being thoughtful.






Merry Christmas again and God Bless
Love
Sophie
