Chit Chat #3 White Beards and Stomach Aches aka 'Christmas'

by 24.12.14

'So this is Christmas, and what have we done?
We've stuffed all our faces,
instead of going
(sung really fast otherwise it doesn't fit) out for a run.'

Today is the 24th and time to place our behinds at the family table. We've been baking and cooking and eating too many cookies. I love it! I know I have been eating too many and am on a constant sugar rush. Then again, I have been ever since I started eating sweets. Tap my blood and it will taste of sugar.

Enough with the rambling now.

Thank you all for a lovely year! We are so happy that The Quantum Enigma is a success, the tours and shows we've done this year were amazing! Looking forward to a new year filled with adventures.

For those of you that like moving motion, check out our Christmas Video for you! See you in India or in 2015!

Eet smakelijk!

    Here's my wishes:

    My dear, lovely and amazing Simone! <3
    Merry, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
    I wish you all the best in this magical time. Hope all your dreams, even the littlest ones will come true in 2015. May next year will be for you something you'll never forget and it will bring only good memories. 2014 is coming to an end so it's time to think about everything what happened. You've released with Epica your sixth studio album 'The Quantum Enigma' which is loved by fans and critics from all over the world. Your little boy has become 1 year old baby which is truly incredible :3 You've taken part in many projects like Countermove, Karmaflowgame and Timo Tolkki's Avalon album. I'm really impressed how versatile you are and what you can do. You're so clever, beautiful young woman and I'm proud that I can call you my biggest inspiration. Thank you for everything, you've changed my life! <3 You probably hear it from many people, but that's the truth - you help people with your music and with things you say and do. It's gorgeous and I would like to be so heartwarming and sensitive person like you. I know, it may be stupid, because I don't know you personally, but when you comes to my mind I can't think about anything else than only positives. You are special for me.. it's a long story but you can trust me - you've taken part in many things in my life, really. I love you, I love your personality, character (yes, that's true) your angelic voice and everything about you <3 You're one of a kind. :)
    I would like to wish you a lot of love, music and happiness. Hope you'll spend Christmas time with beloved ones, especially Oliver and Vincent ( and of course Minou!). Hug this little prince from me. He has wonderful parents. Have more time for relaxing and enjoying peace. A lot of health, because it's so important when you're singer. And if we're at this point.. Many successes in private life and career! I hope you'll see new beautiful places that you've never been before. :) Keep exploring the world! Develop yourself and never stop writing your musician story! You're part of symphonic metal history and you still change it for better ;) Have fun on tours. Many ideas for new Epica material and every project you will take part <3 You can make art from anything! I will repeat it once again, you're so intelligent, creative and beautiful woman. ;) I've never seen person like you and I'm thankful that I can say that I'm Epican. Enjoy life, your motherhood and precious time with your loves!

    I haven't meet you yet, I wanted 8 months to go on your concert in Węgorzewo, but it got cancelled what has broken my heart. I've cried almost two days, because I was waiting for it so badly. I was asking my parents for so long and when they agreed this news happened. I think I won't see you in Poland on your club shows unfortunately... But I don't lose hope. I know that someday I will hug you and thank you in real for making my life different and more beautiful! <3

    Thank you for bottom of my heart and for the end I would like to wish everything what is most important in life. Have amazing Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve and begin 2015 with smile on your gorgeous face!

    Love, hugs and kisses sends from Poland,
    Your devoted fan Julia <3

    Merry Christmas, so much thanks for your music and shows, the Quantum Enigma was absolutely an outstanding success !

    Happy 2015 and Enjoy your hearty Christmas dinner,

    At home, there are no cookies but chocolate truffles. If I could, I would feed myself just with sweet food. Imagine how mosquitoes appreciate my blood in Summer !

    Hangs from France

  8. Lovely photos :) Also, I am always on a sugar rush...super addicted to chocolates. Lately, my obsession have been Raffaellos from Ferrero. YUM <3
    Merry Christmas and a happy 2015, Simone. So grateful I could see Epica two times this year, in Vagos Open Air and in Porto. Vagos one was very very very important to me, since your music and lyrics have helped me during a very sad phase of my life, on July this year, which was my Father's death...

    Sugar rush kiss!
