First Christmas Abroad

Pinterest
As expected, Christmas time in Asia brought some new changes to our surroundings – the grocery store started playing Christmas music (it was the same song over and over again which was funny), some of the coffee shops were decorated with snowflakes and snowmen and the churches had Christmas lights up. We weren’t prepared with our own holiday decorations, but wanted to be in the Christmas spirit so luckily, the big grocery store had just what we needed! We purchased a  5 ft tree with lights and some ornaments. It was really fun to have our own little tree! In fact, we kept it up a little longer than normal because I loved how cheerful it looked.

Due to some changes at work, they asked us to cancel our holiday vacation so we didn’t get to do quite as much exploring as we would have liked to. We still made sure to make the most of it and fulfilled our favorite holiday traditions which included having a delicious dinner and watching A Christmas Story on Christmas Eve and then enjoying baked french toast Christmas morning…I had to improvise with a couple of the ingredients but it still came out tasting pretty darn good!

Then, we got together with friends for dinner at one of the Italian places near by. We spent the rest of the time hanging out as a group and enjoying the holiday. It was a fun Christmas and certainly unlike any other Christmas that we have had in the past. The most exciting part of this time of year were the special visitors that were coming just a few days after Christmas and we couldn’t wait for them to get here! :)
