The Christmas dream
13th of December, Saint Lucy’s Day, the day that officially started the Christmas celebration, but this was before, because today everything starts earlier. I remember that the 13th of December started at the Christmas Market in the Cathedral, and together with my parents and brothers we went to buy a new tree and to have dinner outside, just a sandwich, but we were really thrilled because of what it meant. I loved sharing this tradition and the celebration with all the family, something I still enjoy, because even though things may change, the Christmas spirit lingers on forever. For this reason, I encourage you to keep opening the windows of our advent calendar, in which we offer the best gifts for these days: the books.
