Christmas on Small Town Blogger

Not going to apologize about being absent, I was actually more focused on my Instagram page so it is not like I haven’t been doing anything. But it comes a time when my fingertips miss the feeling of tapping onto a keyboard, so I have come back to do my annual Christmas season posts. I actually have no idea what am I going to write about, except a travel post about my weekend in Munich where I experienced their kind of advent, a possible haul from Munich and a review of advent in Zagreb (as I did last year). If you have any suggestions be free to send them!

The Munich travel post will be out this weekend, so either tomorrow or the day after, so stay tuned!

Why I love Christmas?/ Christmas series 2016

In my last year’s Christmas with Small Town Blogger I expressed my love for Christmas, but never really explained why do I actually love Christmas. So, for the first post in my this year’s series I will try to explain exactly that!


So my story starts two Christmases ago. A dark time in my life. The time I did talk about before. If you have been with me since the beginning you would know that I have anxiety for many years now. And also that I suffered from depression previously, 2/3 years ago.

As a child everyone loves Christmas, whether it is for the Santa, gifts or family time. But later the whole magic of Christmas bursts like a bubble and now all of sudden you treat Christmas like any other day. But I kind came to my senses properly because I was depressed. Let me explain it further and you might understand what I mean.

While I was depressed of course I try to hide it away from my family and friends. (Not a good decision by any means but it is what I did.) So, I was empty inside for the longest time and to keep any will to live I began to obsess with Christmas. I was all in with the decorations, gifts, the Christmas spirit. And at one point it actually started making me kind of happy, as happy as a person with depression can be, obviously.

I blame it on Christmas magic. So in that honour I still go all in every year after that one. And I will for as long as I keep that memory, keep in mind I do not forget easily. My Christmas tradition came from  one of the darkest parts of my life and for me to make it into something good took a lot of strength. And yeah, that is my reason. Do you have yours?

Getting into the Christmas vibe #2

I did the first post in this series about Christmas movies two weeks ago so if you want to check that out click here!

Today we will talk about some classic Christmas songs. It is the perfect time to start listening to your favourite songs right now while you read!

  • Let it snow – one of my absolute favourites, especially done in Glee version!
  • Santa Baby – a flirty one, for those who like to be a little daring.
  •  Santa Tell Me – a pretty new song by Ariana Grande that came out
    last year and it really swept me of my feet.
  • Mistletoe and Fa La La – both songs are by Justin Bieber, from his Christmas album which is amazing by the way, both very sweet songs with a modern touch on the beats! 
  • Last Christmas – the original version is by Wham! and it is definitely one of the most frequently played Christmas songs in forever.

  •  White Christmas – also one of the classics, I personally find that Michael Buble’s voice in this song is pure perfection. 
  • Silent Night – classic above all, a ballad about the story of Christmas!
  • Extraordinary Merry Christmas – a fun kind-of-a Christmas love song, also the Glee version with Lea Michele and Darren Criss is my personal favourite!
  • It’s Begging To Look A Lot Like Christmas – since today is the 1st of December and every single Christmas light is lit up in my country I just couldn’t leave this song out!
