Hello, December

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas”: agora sim, pode vir todo o espírito natalício ! Realmente, o frio já chegou para ficar e as luzes de natal já se acenderam por toda a cidade. Apetece desfrutar de uma grande chávena de chocolate quente, entre cobertores com planos tão simples como ver séries e filmes.

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas”: now all the Christmas spirit may begin ! Truly the cold has finally come to stay and there are Christmas lights all over town. You are left craving big hot chocolate cups, among blankets and have a simple agenda as catching up to series and movies.

Sexta-feira passada fui com o meu namorado à abertura da Winter Wonderland Lisboa e aproveitámos para passear pela baixa para ver todas as decorações natalícias. A cidade conseguiu ficar ainda mais bonita do que o normal. Parece que se esmeraram com as decorações este ano, pois vi algumas bem criativas. Uma das minhas favoritas é o prédio embrulhado como um presente. Tão giro !

Last Friday night I went with my boyfriend to the opening of Lisbon’s Winter Wonderland and we took the opportunity to go downtown and check out all the Christmas decorations. The city is looking even more beautiful than normal. It seems as they aimed for something big this year, because I saw some quite creative. One of my favourites is the building wrapped up with a bow, just like a present. So cute !

Quanto à Wonderland, divertimo-nos imenso ! O Parque Eduardo VII estava repleto de atrações para todas as idades. Claro que nos metemos na fila para experimentar patinar na pista de gelo. E estou muito orgulhosa por nem eu ou o meu namorado ter caído uma única vez ! Claro que ele raramente largou o corrimão haha. Depois assistimos ao concerto de coro gospel no palco montado ali perto e fartámo-nos de dançar e cantar. Óbvio que não resistimos às delícias das várias barraquinhas que nos rodeavam. Enchemo-nos com bifanas e em cima uns crepes XXL GOSTOSOS. Só por isso já valeu a pena visitar a feira ! Só faltou andarmos na roda gigante, centro de atenções de toda a feira. Talvez lá voltemos para ter a linda vista sobre a cidade. 

Regarding the Wonderland, we had tones of fun ! The Eduardo VII Park was filled with attractions for all ages. We got in line to try out the ice skating ring, of course. And I am so proud for me and my boyfriend not falling once ! Of course, he barely let go of the handrail haha. After that we watched the gospel choir show on the stage close by and we had a blast dancing and singing along. Obviously we couldn’t resist the several surrounding stands offering delicious food. We filled up on bifanas and on top we ate some YUMMY XXL crepes. It was worth visiting the fair just on that ! We only missed out on riding the giant wheel, the centre of attention of the fair. But maybe we’ll go back to gaze upon the city.

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!”. E vocês, o que fazem para entrarem no espírito natalício?

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!”. And what about you, what do you do to get into the holiday spirit?
