Hey everyone! Today is Christmas. Tonight here in Austria the Christkind will come and bring all the nice children presents. We can’t wait till tonight. To wrap up our busy advent we decided to make a little Christmas Q&A. Merry Christmas to you all!
1. How do you celebrate Christmas? Are there certain traditions?
Kerstin: I’ll celebrate with my parents and my sister. It’s also my sisters birthday so we celebrate in the afternoon her birthday and in the evening Christmas.
Virginie: I always celebrate with my parents and my little brother. My mum cooks the most delicious menu, while my dad plays some games with us. When the bell rings we know that the Christmas was here and dinner is ready. We eat and before the desert (chocolate mouse) we get to open the presents.
2. What’s on top of your Christmas list?
Kerstin: At first I naturally would wish health for my family. The next thing on my list are studio lights.
