A very merry Christmas from Holland (not Beirut), where I spent Christmas in the company of family and friends. Due to a misunderstanding – a common thing in our family – half of the family thought we had the traditional Christmas dinner last night, while the other half was getting ready for tonight. My SIL had mentioned we’d do the dinner on Christmas Eve, which was understood by two of my brothers as the evening of Christmas day, not the evening before Christmas. And that was quite a good thing, because as a result, we are having two family Christmas dinners.
Unfortunately it is not a white Christmas, unlike the last two years, and so I am cheating and leave you with a picture of last year; the Christmas tree yard in my village, where people come to buy their tree. This one was taken right before Christmas, and all the big/good trees were gone.
And so a merry Christmas, and a happy and healthy 2012 to all.
