Vou colocar no final um pedacinho do que esta la...
Mas o interessante e que essa e a epoca em que todos tem tantas coisas para fazer, a gente fica tao ocupada com arrumacao de casa que nem se da conta de que NATAL significa nascimento de Jesus Cristo.
Eu mesma, envolvida com obra de casa, estava apenas preocupada com a arvore de Natal.
O que e isso?
E voce, tambem e assim? Tambem fica tao ocupada(o) que nem tem tempo para mais nada?
OK. Vamos tentar pensar mais no sentido do Natal. Mas vamos aos shoppings tambem pois a criancada esta esperando por isso tambem.
Mudando de assunto: Gente, a casa ta ficando uma gracinha... tudo ta ficando tao limpinho...hehehehe

Agora vou pois enquanto por ai ta cedo, aqui ja e quase meia-noite!

Ok, I'm not going to translate the text above, but just to say something about the same subject!
I read today two articles about Christmas time, one of them in english (you can see bellow) about Kerstman or Santa Claus. It's interesting to notice how we are so busy with these things that we almost forget the most important thing : Christmas is about JESUS CHRIST.
Are you like this too? Are you so busy with Christmas tree, presents?
Let's think about this but let's also go shopping cause our kids love it, too.
Talking about something else: My house is so clean now... you cannot beleive... hehehe
I promisse you, when I know how to post photos here you will see how my house is ok?
Ok, now I must go cause here is already midnight!
I'm already addicted to this Blog 'thing'... hehehe
Here it goes:
“Christmas in the Netherlands is similar to the experience in other western, predominantly-Christian countries. It is typified by family gatherings, the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, the eating of fine food and drink and in some — but not all families — the giving of gifts.
The Dutch festive season officially starts of course with the arrival of Sinterklaas and his legion of Zwarte Piet helpers in mid-November. He arrives by boat from Spain to a different Dutch city every year in an event broadcast live on television.(...)
The feast of Saint Nicolas is celebrated on 5 December and far from being threatened by his cousin from the North Pole, the tradition of Sinterklaas is rising in popularity.(...)Despite the arrival of Sinterklaas earlier in the month, a second bearded man, also dressed in red, makes his way to the Netherlands on Christmas Eve. Don't be confused though, because the second arrival is the one most expats will be accustomed to, namely Santa Claus (Kerstman in Dutch).(...)The arrival of Santa does not necessarily mean that presents will be shared in every Dutch household. In fact, Sinterklaas is much more popular than the Kerstman. So despite the fact that 50 percent of the Dutch celebrate Christmas with presents — a growing custom — Santa is always second place in comparison with Sinterklaas.”
