Love is all around

As I have now done the last two years, I will attempt to write a blogpost a day for the 12 days of Christmas; the first year the topic was “Hope”, the second I wrote about what ever comes to mind; not sure what this year will bring yet. This is the blog post for the first day of Christmas 21/22.

I will start with love as it seems to be everywhere this Christmas; I don’t know if I am more aware of it, or if we need it more, because of the last few years, but it seems that love is in so many places.

Love for family, love for partners, Christmas movies about love, Christmas calendar about love… Love is all around.

Today and yesterday I spent all in all six hours building the LEGO Architecture set of Taj Mahal. The original was build “by” Shah Jahan in memory of his favorite wife. This monument of love took almost 16 years before it was done, and then additional building was added over the next 5 years.

While the building is known for it’s amazing architecture and is considered one of the 7 wonders of the world, it is mainly seen as a symbol of love. Tourists from all over come to this place, where love was so beautifully manifested in a building. And many couples have taken pictures with it; maybe to show that their love is as strong as that of Shah Jahan? We can only guess.

Love seems to be a good topic, so tomorrow it continues, and then we will see where my brain takes us. One never knows 🙂
