Hehe yes maybe it does.. anyway, thanks :)

I'm always in doubt between saying 'colors' or 'colours' because most people on dA use internation Enlish, but i've learned English English at school.. ;)

Thanks so much Debora! You're so enthousiastic ;) I like that. Have you ever seen snow for real? It's such an odd idea that there are people who have never seen snow while i go down huge mountains full of it at 70 kph on ski's ;)

Cheers!

I saw snow for the first time this year, in the USA :) Seeing snow falling down was so beautiful! I was amazed (and "frozen" too).

I understand you. It should snow all over the Earth! That's not fair :( Many of my friends only know real winter by movies. It's really odd to know that Christmas, for exemple, is also related to winter and snow. We celebrate it here, but instead of making snow men we... go to the beach. It's weird.

"...while i go down huge mountains full of it at 70 kph on ski's"
Hey, don't make me jealous! :P

That must have been an amazing experience, i can hardly imagine to see snow for the first time at an where you can think about those things. I grew up with having snow each winter and small canals and lakes being frozen (so you can ice-skate on them). I'm hoping for a white christmas this year! :) Would be great, i love christmas. Do you buy a christmas tree over there? :)

Yes, it was an amazing experience... You are lucky you can see real winter EVERY year! :)

I love christmas too! :heart:
Here almost everyone has a ("fake") christmas tree... including me! We buy red-and-gold balls and stars and decorate the trees. Shopping centers and houses also are decorated now. And little children write what gift they want to receive for "Papai Noel" (Santa Claus in portuguese)! So cute! The time between decorating the tree (what I have already done this year) and 31th of december is really my favorite part of the entire year. :santa: :santa: :santa:

That's very funny to hear! Did you know, in holland we have another thing called "sinterklaas" (compare: Santa Claus) it's like christmas, some guy goes around and gives presents to everyone. It's very similar to christmas, and most people in holland celebrate sinterklaas instead. It's every year on the 5th of december, but sinterklaas arrives in a boat from spain two weeks before. During that period, children put their shoe next to the fireplace, and sinterklaas' helpers ("zwarte pieten", black peope, "piet" is a very common dutch name) get down through the chimney put candy in their shoes, the kids put in something for the horse that sinterklaas uses to ride over the roofs of houses and a wishlist. On the evening of the 5th of december, called "pakjesavond" (gift-evening), sinterklaas goes up on the roof again with his helpers, and gives the kids their gift by letting the pieten put the present in the shoes via the chimney :)

This is so nice! It must be an amazing celebration... I would love to receive a gift from sinterklaas! :D

I used to write to "papai noel" when I was a child... he gave me a videogame once! It was funny because I was old enough to know that was my dad who bought the videogame but I didn't see him putting the gift in my bedroom anytime- and the gift was there later! (I was like "OMG! Papai Noel really exists!!") Hahaha :lol:
