Shouldn’t you also be downstairs with the rest of the motley crew eating everything that’ll re-appear on your New Year’s ‘banned foods’ list? Go, be merry! Kiss a distant cousin, tell your 6-month old niece that there’s no Santa! This is my first year to be away from family, but I’m spending it quietly with my husband and making new memories. We got ourselves preggers on a very traditional Polish meal (12-dishes, veggie-Bigos [no meat/alcohol on the eve!], pickled herring, a cup of steaming beetroot soup), read a bit of the bible and laughed like merry dwarves over apple pie dessert.
If you’re curious about the Christmas message, this verse from the book of John is a good Cliff’s notes-y summary without going into too much detail.
Happy Christmas my lovelies!
