All necessary gifts are “in the bag”, relevant duties checked off and also the “refrigerator marathon” is completed? Bravo, then treat yourself nicely and allow for a break before the festive days get started.
Enjoy a hot bath for your skin and soul! With the right recipe and additives, you can take care of dry winter skin and warm your heart!
Just mix of 1-2 big spoons (or more) mare’s milk with a spoon of St. Johns herb oil in a glass. Alternatively, you can also use goat’s milk, cream or whey. If you wish, refine the bath additive with 3-5 drops of choice of essential oil, e.g. Lemon balm. My insider tip for the winter skin: essential (frank)incense oil.
Then put the mixture into 37 °/ 38 ° C warm water and relax for about 15-20 minutes. Then wrap and rest (best to preheat the towel or bathrobe). Finally perhaps apply a bit of the wonderful “Rosecream”.
The Christmas day, I no longer schedule apointments, instead I use it to “come down”. For example, to blow my own Annual glass globe on a Christmas market or go for a (forest) walk with deer feeding – to me pure relaxation. This silence, you can hear your blood pounding, you feel yourself.
When I’m near Salzburg, I like to visit Gut Aiderbichl (a home for tortured and old animals) or any animal shelter. https://www.gut-aiderbichl.com/
The beautifully located property has opened on 24th December until 16.00. Two years ago, I took over the sponsorship for a small donkey called “Marie”, which meantime looks very adult.

Talking of the “Wise Kings”, the following reading matter might be a suitable book recommendation: “Samarkand” by Amin Maalouf, an Oriental novel from the East.
It seems a bit like out time, to allow a review on Christmas 1985. 33 years ago I shot a skating and model clip titled “New York, New York”. Unfortunately the shooting location wasn’t the Time Square, nevertheless it had a touch of “angle face”. By the way, in that decade sweeping shoulder pads were in fashion. Once upon a time ….. if you want, just have a look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2bxGb7nDw4
For the time being I want to conclude with the following Christmas wishes: (general translation):
I do not wish you all sorts of gifts, I just wish what most do not have.
I wish you time to rejoice and to laugh,
and if it helps you to make something out of it, too.
I wish you time to find yourself,
every day, every hour to emphazise happiness.
I wish you time to also forgive, I wish you to have time to live.
