Walking in a winter wonderland

Dear reader,

Here in Holland we have the first day of Christmas on December 25th and the second day of Christmas on the 26th. Yes, we celebrate Christmas twice and we love it! No work, no shops, just relaxing, visiting family and food.
As we don’t visit family with Christmas, me and my mum spent Christmas in our pj’s on the couch watching Christmas movies.

But, we didn’t have a white Christmas. As soon as the second day of Christmas was over, it started snowing. So yesterday and today were the third and fourth day of Christmas, this way we still had a white Christmas this year! I love cheating like this.

I love snow. I walked to my work instead of taking the bike. And I loved every second of it. A coworker drove past me and stopped to ask if I wanted a ride, but I declined. It was still snowing and everything was so beautiful. I thought to myself; even if it’s gone in an hour because of the shovel trucks and the salt, I’ve still had my Snow-walk. I even wanted to take pictures, but my phone stopped working because of the cold.

Yesterday afternoon, most of the snow was melting and it started freezing at night, so now everything has turned to ice. The weather today was lovely, so I took out my camera and went for a stroll. It was like walking in a winter wonderland.

Dear reader,

This book is about Regan and Liam. Or Regan and Luna. That kind of depends on what part of the day it is. Liam is transgender, a girl born in the body of a boy. But she only let’s Luna out at night when the parents are asleep. Regan, Luna’s sister is the only one who knows about this secret.

I think it is amazing that there’s a book written about a subject like this. I know some things about it so it’s not all new information, but I’ve never actually met anyone who’s transgender. And so I think it’s good that you can now have a little look inside their lives.

I do kind of dislike Regan, though. She keeps saying she loves Luna and that she will support Liam in everything she does. But on the other hand, she keeps saying that it is ruining her life. She thinks it’s weird that Liam wants to transit. And it makes her a bit two-faced. I really don’t like it. It’s like she’s fine with it, but she doesn’t want anyone else to know about it, because it gives her a bad reputation. Regan is so self-centered that it makes me want to cry. But maybe there’s a logic to it, as her hole life revolves around Luna and Liam…

I wonder what Maxx thought off it.
