'What was your last moment of wonder?' For the next 24 days until Christmas we'll tell you 24 stories of our visitors with their answers to that question. Take a look at our Instagram stories. Julia invited family and friends to celebrate the first Advent Sunday. They all gathered around the Advent wreath while Julia lit the candle. Suddenly her little daughter Eve began to sing Happy Birthday and wanted to blow out the candle, because she has known lighting up candles only from birthdays. #swarovski #kristallwelten #24stories #momentsofwonder
Mir war nicht bewusst, dass mich die Geschichten unserer Besucher dermaßen fesseln. Die Art, in der sie mir ihre persönlichen Lebenseinschnitte erzählten, zusammen mit der Emotionalität, die sie dabei ausstrahlten, löste bei mir Gänsehaut aus.
Ich staunte, wie offen die Besucher zu einer ihr fremden Person sind. Diese Offenheit und Emotionalität ist mein Moment des Staunens - ein wahrhaftiges Weihnachtswunder!
Meine persönliche Lieblingsgeschichte stammt von Hans-Peter aus Zürich, Schweiz. Da sie mich so berührt hat, habe ich sie mir für den 24. Dezember aufbewahrt - seid gespannt.
I haven't been aware of how much the stories of our visitors will fascinate me. There was so much emotionality in the way of telling me a magical part of their life, even if I was a completely unfamiliar person for them - that was my moment of wonder of this years Christmas time.
MY FAVORITE STORY
My favorite story ist of Hans-Peter from Zürich, Switzerland. For the reason that it affects me that much, I will share it on December 24.
