Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Yule, Festivus and all other holidays in between. this year I’m not travelling anywhere and will be spending the festive season at home, with my housemates and friends. What’s happening?

This year I won’t be travelling back to Portugal, nor anywhere else… but I’m not complaining. After these last few busy months, a little time to rest, for myself and to start some projects will be very welcome. A few friends will be coming over for Christmas lunch, including Jasiminne and Henry, so a good time will be had by all. I dragged a 5 kilo turkey home the other day and we’re planning so much more food, it’s silly. The upside is that we probably won’t have to cook for a couple of days afterwards, haha! I look forward to sharing some pics of the banquet we’ll be preparing – that is, if I can actually move to take any pictures, after all the food and booze we will be eating during the day.

Even though I won’t be seeing my family and other loved ones, I am happy to spend it with friends. This time of the year is always a bit difficult for everyone and in my case, it makes me think of all the dearly departed family members that are sorely missed. It’s a good thing to at least have friends to eat, drink and be merry with.

I hope you have some good two (or three days, if you also count Boxing Day) of enjoyment. In the meantime, here’s the best of Seinfeld’s Festivus skits, for a bit of a laugh.

    I’ve been meaning to look for some Seinfeld Festivus fun – thanks for that! And for the lovely graphics.

    Holidays with friends can be as much or more fun than with family – fewer expectations, more silliness, new traditions. Enjoy your holiday!
