Christmas Nostalgia

Christmas reminds me of my parents working together to earn some extra money for the Christmas season, in the cold Netherlands, the last dark months of the year. My dad was cultivating Christmas trees on a small piece of land in the weekends. In the weeks before Christmas he loaded our parking lot in front of the house full and my mum sold them from our house to people in the neighbourhood. I remember her being busy cooking, taking care of two small kids as an extra job, getting the house to look ´Christmas-proof´ and still being there for us as an amazing mother.
