With the arrival of the holiday season, the mood instantly changes. It becomes more elevated, more nervous at times because there is so many things to do, so many presents to buy, cakes and cookies to bake and visits to plan, but also more cheerful as you keep hearing the holiday songs on the radio and you see the towns put on on their most festive apparel and are full of lights, decorations and the smell of mulled wine.
This year, I am especially proud with the holiday decorations in my hometown Rijeka. I don’ t remember it ever being so beautifully decorated, and I believe that everyone noticed it as well, because the town center is full of people at all times, and the atmosphere is louder and more cheerful than ever.
Add to that the constant sound of holiday music following you around from hidden speakers on our main pedestrian street of Korzo and I can openly admit it: I adore my home town in every time of the year, but this Christmas, it is more beautiful and magical than ever and I love it even more!
