Merry Christmas! For those of you who celebrate Christmas and even those of you who don’t, I give you all my best wishes.
So, what does Christmas day look like in my house?
Well, the morning was very quiet. We were alone in the house and the only thing going on since 9:00 a.m. were me and my mother cooking for the
Later, at around 2:30 p.m. came our friends and my grandparents and we sat together to eat lunch. To all of you who eat at 12 p.m., in my family it is very common to eat lunch this late.
Let me now describe to you our Christmas table. We had roasted a pork thigh with potatoes. There was also a huge chicken stuffed with rice, dried fruit, and nuts, the chicken crepes I had already prepared and a few other sides and salads. I know that this is too much food for 10 people, but it’s not unusual.
During lunch everyone was talking about politics -except for my grandpa who was defending his religion (communism). We ended up shouting our opinions at each other, because this is how we do it here in Greece. It was so much fun! There is something special about being able to scream your opinions at others get it all out of your system and have no one have a grudge against you in the end.
Right now, we have a couple of guests staying with us an another family friend, who came for coffee. We are all sitting together and having a very good conversation. Yes, I know that I am writing this post, but I can still discuss things in between.
This will keep going probably until midnight -maybe even later than that.
So tell me…
