Porto at winter time!

A cold December wind blew, and the families went out to stroll through the Portuense streets. The Christmas lights were scattered everywhere, the children’s voices of happiness were everywhere through the narrow streets of Porto, and the scent of roasted chestnut brought to mind stories of childhood that remained to be told to the little ones on the night of Christmas.


– Father, father, father, – John shouted.
John slowed down, started walking, and finally stopped as he watched the tram.
– Let’s go, – Philip said, smiling at his son.
Filipe took his hand, signalling to the driver of the tram …
– There it is, – said Philip. – Good evening, two tickets, please.
John’s gaze, animated by the Christmas lights he saw through the window, made the delight of the older people sitting there …
In fine, what was most important to John it is that moment he spent with his father.
– You know dad, Christmas should be every day, because I see all the people united and very happy …

Soprava um vento frio de Dezembro, e as famílias saiam para passear pelas ruas Portuenses. As luzes de natal estavam espalhadas por todo o lado, os gritos de alegria das crianças faziam eco entre as ruas estreitas do Porto, e o cheiro a castanha assada traziam-nos à memória histórias de infância que ficaram por contar aos mais pequenos na noite de natal.
– Pai, pai, pai – Gritava João.
João desacelerou, começou andar e, por fim, parou enquanto observava o eléctrico.
– Vamos – disse Filipe, sorrindo ao filho.
Filipe segurou-lhe a mão, fazendo sinal ao motorista do eléctrico…
– Ora aí está – exclamou Filipe. – Boa noite, são dois bilhetes, por favor.
O olhar de João, animado pelas luzes de natal que via pela janela fazia a delicia dos mais velhos que se encontravam ali sentados…
Em suma, o mais importante para João era aquele momento passado com o seu pai.
– Sabes pai, o Natal deveria ser todos os dias, pois vejo todas as pessoas unidas e muito felizes…
