For many of my cyber friends, Christmas time comes with cold weather, and in most of the cases, snow. Well, here it goes one picture I took today next to my tree…here it’s full Summer and it’s really suffocating….(as you can see I’m wearing my mini skirt!! LOL, and as you can imagine, I went outside after the pic just to see if my ugly neighbour was around, now she has something to gossip about )

When our ancestors, who were mostly Italian and Spanish immigrants, came to Uruguay, they brought all their customs with them, included their eating habits. So when Christmas comes the family gets together around the table, first on the 24th, to wait for Christmas day, and we eat the same things they used to eat in their countries, food full of calories to endure winter, but here is the middle of the summer!!!!!…in consequence, after dinner we just drop on our armchairs and try hard to catch some air in order to be ready to go out at 12 to fire? some fireworks and greet our neighbours and have some more drinks in the garden….then we get together for lunch on the 25th as well, and we continue eating non-stop. Every year, at least in my house, we say, “No no, next year we WILL eat something lighter”, but we don’t and we won’t I guess.
The problem is that most of us gain some weight in this holidays and since it’s beach time, then we have to stop breathing to hide our tummies when we wear our swimming suits!!! Anyway, I love Christmas and New Year’s Eve, I love being with my family and friends and I love the atmosphere and the hope and all these holidays bring to us.
See ya tomorrow my friends

    Yeah, GO ANALIA!!! Don’t lose one single opportunity to drive that neighbour to apoplexy, even if it IS christmas! I suggest you teach her the word “serendipity”, the best word in our entire language! Then as an extra present, tell her to open her eyes and try finding it, under the tree, next to the tree, in front of her eyes!
    And I don’t think you’ll have too many problems on the beach, not really! Wouldn’t some of us like those problems right now?
    You just make sure you all have the best of times, specially your mum, right? xxx

    Analia,
    You look lovely. Your Christmas traditions sound great even though it puts on weight. 🙂 Besides, people with a little weight give great hugs. 🙂 Many blessings to you and your family. x
