Opia Advent DAY 10 with Theodora Müller

Are you a Christmas lover?

Do you have any Holiday / Christmas traditions?
My favorite tradition was always the gift-unwrapping in the morning under the Christmas Tree with all people I love around me.

What is your favourite food during the holidays?
The Romanian traditional food „Sarmale“ - meat and rice rolls in sour cabbage cooked very long and served with polenta and sour creme.

What is your most vivid childhood memory of Christmas?
Apart from memory of the gift-unpacking, I will never unhear the pig-slaughter in the Day before Christmas. Romanian tradition my grandparents kept for years until they became too old to raise animals in their own yard. 

What is on your wish list this holiday season / Christmas?
I would love to have a very relaxed time with the people I love. It was a tough year.

What was your favourite Christmas present as a child?
I loved books, pretty dresses and any kind of technical - science tools. My father once bought me a microscope and I was busy for a year looking at everything under the lense.

Which gift did you want but never get?
A Hermès scarf.

If you have to choose the perfect gift for your best friend / loved one from your own collection, what would it be?
The Bole Black. Or the Adwa red. My two most favorites.
