Hello my pretty stars! ★
Christmas comes and goes… Did you eat a lot like I did?! As I mentioned in the last blog post, I always spend Christmas Eve at home with my Mum and some yummy food (*^▽^*). This year my sister joined our Xmas dinner as well. My mother prepared the starter: rocket salad, which looked like a Christmas wreath (this was actually my wish ^.^) and the main course: おでん Oden (a traditional Japanese winter dish) and black mussels! I made the dessert: a selfmade Strawberry Shortcake. It is the third time in a row that I made a Strawberry Shortcake on Christmas and this cake was the best so far! I added kirsch to the whipped cream (the last two I made were without) and the taste became absolutely different.
So we had dinner together, took some pictures (of course (＠｀▽´＠)/), exchanged our Christmas presents and afterwards my sister and I watched a DVD together. A relaxing evening with my beloved family.
On the 25 December I went to my (Swiss) granny. It is one of the few events, where I really meet all of my relatives from my father’s side. Uncle, aunty and cousins – I rarely see them during the year, but on Christmas, almost everyone is there. Granny’s traditional Christmas dish is “Fondue Chinoise” (meat fondue). Mhmmmm, I’m lovin it ヾ(ﾞεﾞ*) After we had filled our bellies with all the delicious food, we played some games, enjoyed a nice hot cup of coffee with granny’s selfmade Xmas Cookies and in the evening we made a big mess – respectively my little bro made a big paper mess (ﾟ∇^*) He is the youngest in the family (we others are too grown-up for Christmas presents), so 50% of the presents are for my brother. Sometimes I wish to be a kid again *g*
How do you celebrate Christmas in your country?
