DECEMBER 25th: CHRISTMAS DAY
Merry Christmas to you all!
How did you spend this special Day?
As I told you before, we went to my mum’s yesterday night. When we arrived, there were a lot of presents surrounded the little Christmas tree my mother had put up.
My mother had prepared all the meal. Let me tell you……..
As a starter she made this special salad.
Then, for the main course, she cooked stuffed chicken ……
……accompanied with potatoes in orange sauce.
For dessert we had some ice cream and…………………..
…for the toast she arranged a tray with nuts, turrones, pan dulce (sweet bread with raisins and dried fruits. In Italy they call it Pannettone), dried fruits, snacks and so on.
Then of course we had a toast and took a picture for all of you.
After done this, we opened all the presents. I gave them the 2009 BBC Calendar and they really loved it, especially because my recipe was included there. Then, we exchanged some other gifts. We left around 2 am.
Hope everybody had a happy Christmas surrounded by their loved ones.
I’m curious about your celebrations. What did you do?
Filippo, I like the way you celebrate Christmas. This is a religious celebration and sometimes we forget its real meaning.
A.Paula, it seems that we are the only ones here that have a summer Christmas Day.
Esteban, of course you also had a Summer Christmas Day. Did you see many fireworks along your street? In my mum’s neighbourhood we didn’t see much. It was a bit quiet.
James, thank you for your kind wishes. I love your blogs.
Hyoshil, I’m happy to see you here. You are a faithful commentator. Thank you for reading my blogs.
Naheed, you know, this year is so special to me because I got to know so wonderful people like you. A special thanks to BBC LE staff for that.
Carmen and Anita, for me is also strange to see people with heavy clothes on Christmas. It’s a pleasure for me to take photos for all of you.
Pary, what a special year for you! Your new born son brought more happiness to you. God bless you and your lovely family.
Now we have started counting down the days before New Year.
