Welcome To My World

Wintery Christmassy Feelings

I can feel it in the air. Though the sun was up and bright this morning and the sky was exceptionally clear and blue when I dropped the kids to school, there was a distinct chill in the air. The temperature read 15 degrees at the Akasaka-Mitsuke Crossing at around 9 in the morning. When I glanced at the temperature board on my way back this evening, it read 10 degrees. Yes, its that time of the year again. Some of you might think it a bit early, but suddenly it feels like Christmas, snow (hopefully), cold feet searching for warm skin under layers of blankets, snuggling under a blanket, listening to the cold wind blowing outside the window, downing a few to ensure the ‘inner’ blanket remains warm, hot miso soup on a cold morning, those old Christmas carols and songs on the car stereo, Jim Reeves’ Christmas songs, Anne Murray’s ‘sad old wintery feeling’, memories of Christmas carols back home, Christmas ‘lengkhawm’ songs….. And, most of all, we’ll be going home for Christmas and New Year. At least to Delhi.

With all these in mind, thought I’d also change my ‘theme’ to the same old Christmas theme with which I started this blog round about this time last year.Β 

Here’s me (probably the first in all of blogosphere) hoping we all have a Wonderful Christmas this year πŸ™‚

  1. You’re lucky! Its still hot and humid here in Mumbai. Still need to sleep with the AC in the night. It was never like this at this time of the year last year. Global warming!!!! 😦

    Hope it gets better by Dec because we plan to visit Mumbai for a few days. Maybe we’ll meet? πŸ™‚

  3. Why do I get the feeling that your last statement implies that this may be your last post before Christmas?

  4. For us, being in Southern Hemisphere, we’re just entering the hot and humid summer, which cannot make me having Wintery Christmassy Feelings…. i really missed Mizoram cold wind blows during this special occasion. Hope you have a wonderful C Mas.

    Thanks for visiting, varte. I fully understand and share your feeling for not having that wintery Christmassy feeling and missing home. We spent at least three hot, humid, summery Christmases in Maputo (2001-04) without any close friends to even share that special Christmas spirit and longing for home. The best we could do was have a barbeque on our balcony, Christmas songs in the background, sing a few carols and watch the sun set over the Indian Ocean. Sad, but I somehow miss those days sometimes. Anyway, hope you too have a wonderful Christmas.
