All I want for Christmas

December: make my wishes come true

Santa, can you hear me?
I have been so good this year.
And all I want is one thing
Tell me my true love is near.

Hello December,

It’s a little less than 12 days before Christmas. I try not to ask so much from you every year as I want to be surprised by what you have in store for me. This time though, I can’t help myself but wish for a few things — like a new phone.

Losing the last one I had was saddening.  I prefer qwerty keypads to touchscreens but I don’t mind the latter. As long as this new one allows apps (and we know which app I’m talking about) and has all the things that I need.

Some books are on my list as well: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy + The Hobbit, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, among others.

A bag, a dress, a black and/or white blazer, a necklace, a pair of flats, a pair of white sandals, make-up (Jimmy Cooper, Etude House, The Face Shop, Majolica Majorca), and a How-To-Do Make-up book. Yes, I would like to learn so I don’t have to depend on others all the time.

Perhaps here is where the material things stop. Honestly, I don’t expect to get all of them. I guess it’s just if I was asked what I want, these are the things I would like for Christmas.

The more important wishes I guess, are the ones that I know not too easily fulfilled.

A chance to go out — as in really go out. I don’t know where or with whom just yet, but I think it would be lovely that I’d have that one day where I can simply enjoy the day with someone. Or perhaps, a day on my own.

A chance to give joy to someone who least expects it from me. And I guess, it also depends on the other, the reaction toward was what given — be it a simple Merry Christmas or a hug.

To feel the chilling yet comforting air of December.

To enjoy Christmas with the important people in my life. And by that, to really enjoy it for I was somewhere else the year before and spent the holidays there. 

And…

A moment (or perhaps, moments) where I will blush, out of sheer gratitude or happiness.

Then again, I might just let you surprise me after all.

Love,

Mai
