Carnival VII - It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas
This week's carnival:-
Have you spent Christmas overseas and away from your family? What did you do? How did you connect with people back home? Most importantly who did you spend it with? If this is your first Christmas O/S - what are your plans?
Anna's ventures into the final frontier.
"I've always been blessed in my friends, and have always been able to make some connection with them, no matter where I am. But I miss the tastes that make Christmas, I miss the way the snow crunches under your feet. "
Don decides if you can't go home for Christmas, bring it to you!
"One of the big things about Christmas for me was spending a bit of time with my Mom. That combine with wanting to take some pressure off of her in hosting led to an invite to visit for Christmas. I was even able to fly her over as my gift."
Phil remembers when he made a list but forgot to check it twice (and ask for directions).
"Not to worry dear reader, I was there to rescue proceedings and carefully steered the lurching group (we still drank the Bulgarian Red because hell it still was alcohol) to a chapel that I discovered was only two blocks away rather than one hour travelling time to the closest Cathedral."
Thanks to all particpants!
Expat Carnival will be on hiatus until the week after New Year's Eve. So have a Merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year.... because we are going to want to hear about it.
