Waiting for something extraordinary…

Christmas came and also the days that passed too fast. Last year did not allow us to go to carol concerts, to visit belens neither to see the decorations or the theatre plays… this year was the same.
The city was crowded. Christmas time started since September with the commercial promotions in the stores full of Christmas products. TV was full of commercials as well. Everything to make you well among mobiles, computers, houses, insurances, trips… everything for Christmas happiness except the Christmas and the happiness.
