Nytårs-blues

Kender I det?

Ja, jeg elsker tilsyneladende ordet “blues”. Det er nok fordi det er let og alvorligt på samme tid. Det tillader en at gå rundt og være lidt melankolsk, men stadig på en cool og jazzet måde. Meget bedre end emo, depri, sur eller bitter!

Dagen i dag har vi bare brugt på at købe ind til nytår, det er ret trættende. Valdemar har sovet siden kl.12 (nu er den 16.30), og jeg ved ikke helt, hvad jeg skal gøre af mig selv. Jeg burde virkelig lave noget fornuftigt, men burde også slappe af. Indtil videre har jeg set lidt serie, spist kartofler med sovs, skrevet mit juleindlæg færdigt, sendt et brev med vaskeægte sneglepost.

Nå, den berømte blues.. Jeg får den altid her op til nytår, og især i starten af januar. Måske er det bare en forlænget jule-blues.. der kommer altid en “downer” efter al den optur, ikke?

Den 24. december var en god dag, især fordi jeg fik lov til at være helt alene hjemme i to timer. Det var virkelig guld værd, at få lov til at lade op før intenst socialt samvær. Det burde være en tradition. Overskuddet varede faktisk helt frem til den 27. Dagen efter juleaften var jeg nærmest helt høj. Nok også fordi vi alle tre fik grineflip på vej hjem i toget, og der er bare ikke noget bedre, end at høre Valde grine. Jeg var ualmindeligt glad, lykkelig, faktisk. Man burde grine noget mere, det sætter altså gang i noget.

Dagene mellem jul og nytår kan være noget grå i det, synes jeg. Jeg tror ikke jeg er alene om at have lidt en øv-følelse. Spændingen er udløst, maden er spist, der er kun dårlige film i fjernsynet. Måske er der en masse rester af juleslik, men kroppen kan virkelig ikke rumme mere sukker eller kanel. Hele ens organisme skriger efter friske grøntsager, men man magter ikke at rejse sig fra sofaen for at forberede dem…

Godt nytår
Nytår 2014

Så nærmer vi os nytårsaften! Der er nok mange, som har et lidt anstrengt forhold til nytår, jeg er en af dem. Der er så mange forventninger om at det skal blive en god aften, næsten flere end juleaften. Ofte ender det i skuffelse.

I år skal vi fejre nytår hjemme hos os selv (dvs. i svigermors lejlighed) med et lille selskab, bestående af to af vores gode venner. Vi skal have lækker vegansk mad, og selvfølgelig masser af snacks. Det er næsten det bedste.

I min familie har vi altid haft meget faste nytårs-traditioner. For det første var der uendelige mængder snacks – et af succeskriterierne for en god fest. Og der skal være saltstænger! Da vi var børn, elskede vi nytår, for så måtte vi vælge lige hvad vi ville blandt “de dyre mærker”, dvs. Kims chips og Carte D’or-is. Hjemme hos os fik sjældent mærkevarer som Kellog’s og Coca-Cola, det var discount, der stod på menuen. Så nytårsaften var noget helt særligt. Menuen i det mørke Vestjylland, på grænsen til Sønderjylland, var nok noget anderledes end her i hovedstaden, har jeg senere erfaret. Vi fik altid kogt hamburgerryg med stuvet grønlangkål (“stuvet græsplæne”), evt. med mosede hvide kartofler i på ægte sønderjysk manér. Dertil hørte sig selvfølgelig brunede kartofler. I dag er min mor begyndt at spise kålpølser og sønderjysk hvidkål, men ellers er alt ved det gamle.

Jeg husker det som om vi stort set altid har været vågne til efter 12. Til gengæld skulle vi altid forsøge at tage en middagslur nytårsdag. Til daglig fik vi en fast opdragelse, men til nytår var der ret frie tøjler. Vi fik lov til at være med og se de voksne fulde, og ret tidligt fik vi også lov til selv at smage alkohol. Mine forældre har altid haft et ret afslappet forhold til alkohol, og har gjort meget ud af, at det ikke skulle være noget forbudt (for så vidste de nok, at det kun ville friste os endnu mere). Så vi har sådan set “lært at drikke hjemmefra”. Jeg husker at jeg som 11-12 årig fik lov til at drikke en øl, og smage min fars cigar (han skulle altid have en nytårscigar, selvom han normalt ikke røg, det var bare en tradition). Puha, sikke en smag, cigar har jeg ikke smagt siden da.

Hvert år fejrede jeg nytår sammen med mine forældre, indtil jeg blev 13-14 år, og de blev skilt. Derefter spiste min søster og jeg hos enten min mor eller far, hvorefter vi drog videre til hver vores fest. Jeg må indrømme, at de fleste af disse fester, var mere eller mindre mislykkede – altså dem i teenageårene. Enten fordi jeg blev for fuld – ok, mest derfor – eller fordi de var kedelige.

Dengang jeg var ung og festlig
Dengang jeg var ung og festlig i 2.g

Ak ja, den nostalgi.. barndommen var lykkelig, ungdommen forfærdelig, og nu bilder jeg mig selv ind, at jeg er voksen. Men selvfølgelig var der både gode og dårlige ting ved begge perioder.

Selvom jeg nu næsten er gået all-in på at være småbørnsfamilie-kedelig, ligger der stadig en forventning om, at det skal være en særlig aften, en festlig aften.

Mon jeg bliver skuffet i år?
