My family and I usually spend 12 midnight together - the line between the 24th and the 25th. We would eat together and open the presents at this time. This year was different. My brother was in the hospital, my sister was in the airport, and my parents were with my sister. My siblings had work.
So I opened my gifts at 12 midnight alone. It was kind of lonely, but at least Mikhail was on the phone with me. He gave me these really cute penguin socks that kept me company during 12 midnight.
In the morning, Mikhail and I went to have our annual Christmas breakfast buffet, then went to his place to open the gifts. I got him a toy: the 10th Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver. He got me a portable S4 charger, and this notebook, which contained 3 short stories and 3 heartfelt letter. It was so personal that it made my Christmas complete. It’s actually something that I only have; it’s something that someone made for me.
Christmas 2013 isn’t so bad after all.
Happy Christmas, everyone! :)
