Christmas this year is one of mixed emotions for me; on the one hand it’s the first one I’ve spent with my wife in the US and on the other hand it’s the first time I’ve been away from my British family at Christmas. It’s a little hard balancing these emotions but then I guess that’s Christmas. It’s very mild and rainy here in Boston today and it doesn’t really feel like a proper Christmas at all; I was desperately hoping for snow. There are no Christmas crackers, no mince pies and no Christmas puddings (as I wrote about here Christmas in the US is a little different to the UK) but one of the most important things about Christmas is that it’s about family and as we are spending time with Kat’s family that’s good enough for me. I am meeting a lot of new people this Christmas so I’ll let you know if I manage to make an amusing/tragic faux pas today.
I would like to wish all of my readers a very happy Christmas and if you don’t celebrate Christmas then happy holidays! 🙂
