Snapshots #5 - Happy Holidays!


I hope everyone had a great Christmas and to those who are having a break from work, have lots of fun on my behalf. It has been painful for me to wake up on the early morning of the 27th after two days of celebrations/partying with family and friends. I, unfortunately, had to go to work. It was extremely depressing but at least the trains were quiet.

As per tradition, we gather at home and had our little Christmas Eve celebration (if you count 9 people as a small party). After stuffing ourselves with food, we proceeded to spend the rest of the night playing board games. Who knew Harry Potter board games could cause such a ruckus on the living room floor? Before long, the clock struck 12 and its arrival saw the floor covered with torn wrapping paper and ribbons. Christmas day was basically the same. Just lots more food. As a result I'm still suffering from the after effects of overeating. I might have made a pact with mum to be a vegetarian for a month. But give me a week and I will miss meat again.

Do you celebrate Christmas? If so, do you have your own Christmas tradition?

Those Christmas houses are something else! I may or may not have made a similar pact only to be found pigging out on leftovers the next day. But what's a girl to do?! x

Your Christmas looks and sounds absolutely fantastic! Mine is usually a quiet affair with family and a couple of close friends.

Happy New Year, dear! x

Oh my, I wonder what happened next to that guy who fell off the ladder while hanging lights. Lots of yummy treats. :) Ours was a great one, a complete celebration after a decade.
Have a festive New Year's Eve party as a sequel to this feast.

Christmas over there looks SO different! The decorations look different to me and I'm sure a lot of that is thanks to the seasonal differences. Lovely photos, as usual.
