Xmas FU

2009121802.jpg

在北國過了好多年的耶誕節,突然間,在亞熱帶的現在,不知道該怎麼找到心中那股過節的心境。

2009121801.jpg

台中,還真的找不到一棵能入鏡的耶誕樹,聽說市府前那棵讓老P好驚奇,不過就連很商業的新光三越前,都沒有一棵像樣的造型樹,勤美誠品前更只有一只雪橇的框架。這果然不是我們的節日,所以,弄得四不像,也不能太苛求。

還好,這週來了一波強烈冷氣團,冷颼颼的空氣,灰濛濛的天空,一整個很冬天的氣氛,數位廣播裡成天傳來了英國、德國的耶誕歌曲,讓我又很沒用的遁入了英國的回憶當中。剛剛終於拿出了冬被,裝了昨天剛洗好的已經七年沒蓋的被套,要不然靠近北面窗邊的室內溫度只有14度C,還真的有點誇張。

此時的英國,應該是冷冷的天,下午三四點就天黑了,店家黃黃的溫暖燈光和冷冽的深藍天空相對應著,市中心廣場上的旋轉木馬、摩天輪、耶誕市集,稍稍暖了大地的冷空氣,大家吞吐著白白的水蒸氣,在大街上急行著,櫥窗裡琳瑯滿目的耶誕飾品,服飾店裡盛裝的耶誕晚禮服,大家忙著採購耶誕飾品、耶誕禮物、耶誕食物的熱絡氣氛,M&S排隊等著領火雞的英國人,超市裡一籃又一籃的brussels sprouts,手腳慢一點的,可能連一張卡片都買不到,我常常就是這樣。

不過,話說回來,過節對一些人來說,也是極大的壓力,所以,也認識了一些從不過節的英國朋友,他們覺得這樣很浪費。

2009121804.jpg

每年的這個週末夜晚,我們總會在Hallamshire Hospital前的公車站,在寒風中(甚至雨中)等著開往山上的40號或120號公車,趕往山上的Fulwood教堂,參加一年一度的Carols by Candlelight,耶誕節前最後一個週末的的燭光之夜,和大夥兒合唱一整晚的耶誕福音歌曲,管風琴的樂音,到現在都還深深的印在心中。英國朋友夫妻倆都是教會合唱團的成員,每年總是熱情的邀請我們參與,結束之後,教會還提供了溫暖的茶、咖啡和聖誕節一定要吃的Mince Pies。暖了胃之後,就和英國朋友回到他們家,繼續喝杯更暖胃的耶誕熱紅酒Mulled Wine,再啃幾塊她手工製作的Mince Pies,天啊!現在真的真的好想烤一個來吃!當然,一定要指明我最愛的Duchy Originals。

2009121803.jpg

聽說,這兩天雪菲爾也下了雪,不知道雪況如何。每年的這個時候,在英國的大家(包含英國人自己)總是期待著白色聖誕,如果有點預兆,連氣象主播都會很興奮的預報著,因為英國冬天要降雪的機會其實不太多,如果能在耶誕節時來點雪花,那就更有過節的FU了。當然,這七年來我們幾乎也沒遇上,只有某一年意思意思的下了一點點。

唉呀呀~不能再回憶下去了。眼淚真的都要飆出來了。

陽台外的夜景,就當作是燭光吧~

Ce sac cartable Michael Kors est si universel qu'il pourrait plaire à tout le monde. Dans cet article, je vais essayer de passer en revue les caractéristiques principales et les éléments qui distinguent ce sac à main des autres.

L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.

Christine,
問題是
我覺得我們的農曆新年也很沒味呀

mrs.turtle 發表於 December 25, 2009 05:17 PM

嗯...德朵夫人說得沒錯,畢竟不是自己家的節日,過起來就是感覺差一些,但....但是...農曆新年就很夠味了!(安慰的方式好像很爛...)

Christine 發表於 December 22, 2009 04:51 PM

Fin,
就是沒有體驗過美國的耶誕節慶氣息呀
以後一定要找機會來去瞧瞧
這週末就是囉
先祝你們一家人都平安快樂,明年繼續到處旅行

7 point,
哈~那當然是不能錯過的啦
不過每次26日去Meadowhall回來後
老P就感冒了(屢試不爽)

KK,
Merry Xmas!!

Lydie,
結果~我今年都沒寫卡片呀

MJ,
英美兩國對於這件事是真的太誇張了啊
是自己的節慶
為什麼不能過捏
我也不能理解

蓓爾小姐,
真的真的
要用力努力的記住那一切
回來那些都會變成"幻影"了
以前朋友這樣跟我說
我很篤定的告訴自己:怎麼可能,這麼鮮明的印象,不可能很快會遺失!?
我才回來三個多月
都快抓不住那個FU了啊

Lmum,
總之,就是先抓住眼前的幸福最重要
以後的事,以後就會明瞭了
我想,現在所體會的一切
雖然事後不一定能再有
但是烙印在心中的感動
會發生物理變化和化學變化的
再用別的方式轉換出來

damike,
這裡已經記錄了我們在那裡生活的一切
吃喝玩樂什麼都有啊
就請你有時間慢慢看囉~

insomnia,
妳真是太幸運啦
第一年就碰上我們七年都沒碰過的大雪啊
會不會有白色聖誕呢

Jade,
快貼幾張白色雪城的景色給我們"哈"一下吧
好懷念那種看著大雪快報的心情啊

mrs.turtle 發表於 December 21, 2009 01:36 PM

白色的雪城真的很有FU喔~~
今天又下了幾場大雪,
氣象說會一直冷到Christmasㄝ
說不定積雪也可以撐到那時候喔 哈哈
8年在英國的聖誕節
終於有一次白色聖誕節啦
不過....-7度是會多冷啊!!好難想像阿
學校也要關們了, 沒有FREE的暖氣可以吹了
只能在家裡包成一隻熊, 短短開個幾小時暖氣省瓦斯費吧
哈哈
祝夫人和老P聖誕快樂喔!!
Wishing you everything beautiful at Christmas and always~~~~

Jade 發表於 December 21, 2009 06:56 AM

夫人好久不見阿~
雪菲爾從上禮拜四就開始下雪囉!
今天更是大雪呢!
我只去了200m外的Tesco買東西,回來身上都是雪花片片嚕~
一路上都是一層雪毯,
還有小孩子在籃球場堆雪人喔!
祝:聖誕快樂^____^

insomnia 發表於 December 21, 2009 04:12 AM

o!merry x'mas!btw

damike 發表於 December 21, 2009 03:20 AM

你好,无意之间搜索到你的部落格(台湾朋友是这样叫吧),哈哈
话说我一月份将要开始在雪菲的留学生活,无奈之下上网搜索关于那个国家、那个城市的种种。
看了你所描绘的雪菲,让我欣慰而又充满憧憬,呵呵。对于即将开始的雪菲生活突然不再那么紧张。
能再向我说说关于那个城市的些许么?有没有什么特别需要准备的物件?有没有什么特别需要注意的事项?
有没有什么不容错过的地方?
感谢万分,呵呵!

damike 發表於 December 21, 2009 03:18 AM

All the while I have felt very fortunate being able to have the rare chance to live abroad for much longer time than most of other people could have dreamed of in their lives, Even so, once in a while I am still at sea and don’t know which direction would be right for me to be set in place and go on.

The news said that Children in England have had an earlier Christmas as a result of the heavy snowfall having blanketed most of Britain. In my town, though just a little bit of snow over yesterday night but we are still under the frozen temperature of minus six degrees Celsius outside in the morning, so now is really right on the season to say Happy Xmas, Turtle!

Lmum 發表於 December 20, 2009 09:29 PM

夫人想飆淚的心情
蓓爾也感同身受
雖然人還在這裡
但想到不久之後
包袱也是得"款款吔"...落淚中....

真的很感謝聖誕老公公
在聖誕還沒到來前
就送上片片的雪花祝福
每天醒來 看到窗外的白色世界
幸福...感覺都要溢出來了
蓓薾得好好把握機會
把這雪白的倫敦
用力的烙在腦海裡

蓓爾小姐 發表於 December 20, 2009 05:58 PM

台灣真的很沒有過耶誕節的FU~~
還好我住的天母還稍微像樣點
可是 不知道是不是因為在歐洲
"顧慮"到那些回教人士
英國政府還要基督徒過節"約束點"

幾年前在耶誕前夕 從倫敦飛回香港度假
反而是香港政府和擁有大型建築的公司
配合耶誕燈火秀 是我看過最有耶誕味的城市了
要知道 當時住在倫敦市中心
整條OXFORD STREET都沒裝飾的這麼美ㄚ!!

MJ 發表於 December 19, 2009 09:25 PM

在你的感染下
今年我還是手寫幾張卡片寄給遠方的好友們
雖然這不是個綠色的行為
但 為了那個大家心裏的那陣FU
小對不起地球一下吧
Merry X'mas!~~

Lydie 發表於 December 19, 2009 11:42 AM

是真的要在國外才有聖誕Fu呢!

祝~ Merry X'mas!! ^^*

走過每一處的最大好處就是:
可以回憶;統統都在妳的照片及腦海裏。
我在這與聖誕人潮奮戰,平常很有禮貌的美國人,碰到聖誕,大家都在搶路開。
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!!
