This year has flown by so quickly. It seems as if only yesterday I was celebrating the arrival of 2011, and now it is nearly gone. Luckily we have one big holiday to celebrate before we ring in the New Year. And unless you've been living under a rock all of your life, you know that holiday is Christmas! Or if you're Jewish, you may be celebrating Hanukkah. Either way, the holiday season is exciting no matter what you're celebrating!
And with Christmas and/or Hanukkah celebrations nearing closer, many people have started making plans for holiday, myself included. Mine are a bit unorthodox, however. In 2009(also my first year on Stardoll) I began a tradition of sorts. That being the tradition of travel. All of my life I have dreamt of traveling abroad and experiencing new places and culture. In 2009 I visited Colorado, which isn't out of the country, but it's somewhere I have always wanted to visit. And in the fall of 2010 I took a trip to Russia, followed by Japan during the Christmas holidays. And this year is no exception. And after much debate, I have decided that I want to travel to the ever-beautiful Sweden. I have been saving up for holiday since around March of this year, and today I booked my plane ticket and lodging at the Rica Hotel in Stockholm. I'll be in Sweden from December 18th to January 4th.
Since my holiday interferes with Christmas, I'll have a mini Christmas celebration with my family before I leave. It's much like regular Christmas celebration, except for the fact that it won't be on Christmas day. I'll present my family with the gifts I bought for them and in return I'll open the gifts they bought for me. We'll also have a small dinner. And on Christmas morning they'll celebrate like normal without me.
