Time flies, I can’t believe Christmas is just around the corner and another year has almost gone by. Festive season are always my favorite. I was growing up in a very big family with 49 cousins then, now about triple in size, and festive seasons have been the best time to get together. We normally enjoy cooking, eating, sharing and celebrating. After married abroad and travelling and living few years in different countries, there are more and more celebrations to enjoy in life.
Since moving to Melbourne, things are a bit quiet, sometimes both our parents have to remind us or send us photos to show what they celebrate. It makes me miss them so much for the good times we used to have. Well, I have to face it. I am not quietly sitting and tearing missing. In here I try to catch up as much as possible and teach my children what Australian festivals have to offer. Of course, one of the best festivals ever is Christmas. I am very grateful we are surrounded by nice and friendly neighbors. We have already celebrated the big event together, one day with the back neighbor and the next with few front neighbors. Our tables were full of different food from different origins: European, Aussie and Asian. What more can I ask for? Friends and neighbors are the closest ‘relative’ we have here. Thanks for their supports and friendship for so many years. Thank you.
For all of you who are reading, I wish you and your entire family a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
