Christmas traditions Vol. 1

I'm one of these people who get ridiculously happy in the prospect of Christmas. I'm not really sure why is that, but I love how I gradually get into the holiday spirit as the weather becomes colder and the amount of days till the holidays grows shorter.

Also I must tell you that really, deep down, I'm a girl of tradition. Especially during Christmas, I want some things that completely say "holiday" to me, to be there. And as they make their appearance one by one and the spirit grows inside me, I decided I should count them here. With photos.

Christmas Tradition #1:

See this? It looks delicious, and it is. Tradition in my family has it so my grandfather is the one to bring home all the tasty Christmas food, starting with this beautiful thing called a panatone. (italian accent plz!) It's a really nice italian cake thingy that is eaten during the Christmas period and comes with caster sugar. I remember going with my grandpa and mom to buy these when I was little and eating them as breakfast every day during the holidays.

Damn! Now with the cold, I'm even more excited about Christmas!

PS. Don't forget the giveaway!
