For us it was all about friends, food and having fun. The cookie exchange hosted by neighbours Rose Mary and Tony was a huge success. My contribution was Nanaimo bars.

We had Christmas Eve dinner with our Canadian friends, Diane and John, at their lovely home.
On Christmas Day, our neighbours Alina and Mike invited us for dinner with them and Mike's mother, Patricia, visiting from North Carolina. Another feast - this time turkey. We were sent home with turkey for sandwiches the next day, and homemade cookies and candies.
I haven't yet uploaded the photos I took at their house so will post them on another blog entry.
We also went to the Festival of the Lights in Atenas with friends. The parade started just after dusk, with lighted floats and school marching bands from all over. I took photos and made a video and lost both somewhere on my computer. Maybe they will eventually turn up.
Now it is a brand new year - Feliz Años Nuevo to everyone!
