Joyful Christmas Calendar


Bring Joy to pre-Christmas season, to it’s each day!



Christmas Is the Time of Closeness…

This year the idea of Christmas season feels different than ever before. We may not be able to see all of our beloved ones and sit together with them in the same table. We miss the Christmases of the past and the time when life was more worry-free. The darkest of the winter sucks to your mind more easily. 

We worry not only about ourselves but also our beloved ones. The whole world is holding it’s breath and people are afraid of each other. 

The corona pandemia affects us all globally and causes very contradictory feelings. The limitations make every say life more difficult and feed even anger. 

Our children should have the right to live a proper childhood. Going to school however is very different now than what is was before. We have been separated from each other and it even affects mental health. 

Christmas is supposed to be the time of closeness. A human being os not made to live alone. It’s difficult to find Christmas spirit when the whole life seams to be online.   

We’d love to meet grandparents and grandchildren, host guests from other countries, sing Christmas carols in the church and attend the Christmas night mass. We’d love to hug each other, kiss and hold hands. We’d love to bake to school’s benefit sales and see our children perform in Christmas plays. Even Santa Claus may not be able to come to all homes. After all, he’s super old and definitely belongs to risk group. It would be so wonderful just to get back the magic of Christmas and the excitement. 

To us, Christmas is memories and hopes deeply rooted to our hearts. It brings us security and traditions. We’ve lived for a long time in anxiousness. Still the magic of Christmas easies your mind, also this year. I will spend Christmas this time for the third time in Italy, that has suffered from this pandemia deeply. Despite of all, my beloved home town will again be dressed in gold, silver, red and green. The Christmas light will bring light to our hearts.

What Will This Christmas be Like?

Many of us work hard to create the perfect Christmas and are completely nacked when Christmas Day finally comes. This Christmas the stress is even bigger. We worry for the availability about food supplies and buying Christmas presents in the middle of safety restrictions and even quarantine. We try to remember the little details that make Christmas to our families. 

In the department stores we hear speakers reminding its to keep distance and people are even avoiding eye contact. We hope that the presents will arrive in time, when the whole world is sending present through mail. We seldom have time to sit in the corner of the couch with a hot glass od mulled wine and just to listen to Christmas carols or just silence. 

The news about corona virus and the anxiousness just feel like too much, and it would be wonderful just to close it all away from consciousness. Instead we’d like to enjoy Christmas season just like before. We miss the Christmases of our childhood, when  the kitchen was full of wonderful scents and we could hear mother packed the presents behind a closed door. How to bring that spirit to this atmosphere?

We all know the feeling of Christmas stress all too well. But what if we gave it up, and instead build Christmas piece by piece every day, little by little and enjoy it instead of stressing about it? This Christmas’ message should be more than ever full of love and joy of life. 

How about if we switched this all into positivity and together make this the

Best Christmas Ever!

Heidi Niemi

Hey there Knitter Babe!

I’m so happy that you’ve found your way here to my pages! I’m Heidi, a Finnish woman living in Florence, Italy. 

I have knitted ever since I remember. It’s something that my  nonna taught me when I was a little girl. I also learned from her the love for vintage style.

I’m a  fashion designer and I have also studied art history and social psychology in the University of Helsinki.

My style is a combination of vintage vibes,  Finnish design and Italian joy of life.  

I have one beautiful cat, a great sense of humour and a deep love of history and art. I’m full of ideas and always creating new things. My superpower is empathy.
