Your name / where you are from / where do you live ?
My name is Klara, I'm from Vienna and currently live in Vienna and Rome.
Your kid’s name and age ?
Since June last year I'm mum of Matteo who is a very lively, autonomous and interested little boy.
Tell me about your personal BEST-OF the Holiday season?
My best-of the holiday season is a white Christmas eve, walking through the freshly fallen snow that covers all noises. Unfortunately, it's a very rare pleasure but there is still hope for this year.
How do they celebrate the holidays ?
In Austria we celebrate Saint Nikolaus on 6 December and the Christkind that brings presents on 24 December. In Italy there are Babbo Natale and the Befana on 6 January. Gets a bit confusing.
Do you create any new traditions with your partner and kids?
Until now we haven't, we are still pretty inexperienced parents with different traditions from the respective families and cultures. I think we still haven’t decided who brings the presents for Matteo.
May I have a sneak preview of your tree ?
The Christmas tree will be decorated only on 24 December. In the meantime Matteo has his advent calendar. Every day he receives a little treat and a piece of decoration he can stick on the felt tree. The good thing he can decorate and redecorate as much as he wants.
What does Matteo wish for from Santa ?
I wish for a wooden train for Matteo - I think I'll take care to get this wish fulfilled.
... and what do YOU wish for ?
I asked Santa for a day "off" together with my partner at a hot springs resort while Matteo has a fun day with his grandma.
