Christmas has always been my favourite holiday. When I was a little boy I remember Santa visiting our appartment on Christmas Eve. He always asked if I was a good boy and if I could sing him a song or tell a rhyme to make him happy. I was always embarrassed and insecure to do so, but what we don’t do to please Santa Claus. Few years later I discovered Santa is our neighbour, which was kind of surprising and traumatic, but still, for all these years Christmas has a magic within. The magic of our hearts that share joy and love, forgetting about problems. A time to forgive and forget.
When people get older it gets harder to think about a good present. As a little boy I could always asked for a game, a mascot or some different kind of toy. When parents ask me to give them a hint on what they could get me I have problems answering. Those days I get more satisfaction from giving presents than from getting them. Sure it is lovely to get a nicely wrapped surprise but I like spending some time in Christmas decorated shopping centers wandering around trying to find something suitable for my parents. Sometimes it’s a real challenge to find a good present for them, but no matter how much time I would need it’s always heart-warming to see their happy faces when they open the giftbox. Giving gives me a lot of joy. I’m happy when I can make others happy.
Along with the beginning of December perfumer Andy Tauer of Tauer Perfumes started once again his annual Advent Calendar giveaway event in which you can win many awesome prizes including full bottles from Tauer line, fragrances from Tableau de Parfum and mystery gifts. Shortly after a launch of Advent Calendar for 2012 I emailed Andy Tauer (a.k.a SanTauer Claus) saying that I would be happy to become his elf helper for a day. In responce I got a lovely message saying he would be delighted to have an elf helper like me by his side. I’m really happy and excited about it. Glad I could help.
In result of those events I’m happy and proud to announce that Chemist in the Bottle is the next stop in Andy Tauer’s Advent Calendar holiday event.
