The holiday season is upon us, and my husband and I are finally starting to get into the holiday spirit. Maybe it’s the festive cappuccinos or the warm vin chaud and the carolers singing in the streets, but either way, the holidays are here and I can’t wait to start some new traditions with my husband during our first Christmas abroad. For me, the holidays are a season of giving. I consider myself blessed because my entire life I basically have never had want of any necessities of life, and the holidays were always filled with an abundance of love, family, and food – and I enjoy giving gifts to show my love and affection to friends and family I care about. I agonized over what to give my husband for Christmas for weeks – and then it dawned on me that the reason it was so difficult is that he really doesn’t need anything. Neither do I. We don’t need anything.
