I said that I was going to use this blog to document what’s going on more and then I didn’t post and pictures from Christmas, silly me.
One of the most wonderful things about Jozi has been the warmth and generosity of people we’ve met. Maybe it was because of the language divide in Berlin, but we’ve made so many friends so much faster here (I suppose I didn’t blog in Berlin and I’ve made quite a few friends through blogging!). We spent Christmas eve and day with a group of expats from all over. We received our first ever holiday crackers. Inside P’s was a pair of tweezers and inside mine was a refrigerator magnet. Very practical.
It was not as good as a snowy Minnesota Christmas (though P said he is not missing the cold ONE BIT) with family, especially because my mother-in-law got me my very own stocking(!!!) but it was lovely and our first as a married couple. Plus we ate so much delicious food and didn’t even cook. I wish there was a holiday season every month.
