I always spend the Christmas day at my Grandmother’s house. This is the time when all my family, even the ones who live far away during the rest of the year, is together to celebrate. Winter warm sunlight going throught the window, classic Christmas background music playing, the smell of turkey coming from the oven, the colours of all the traditional pastry and the joy in everyone’s faces are all that I am excited for each year.
As you may know, Portuguese pastry is internationally known for their deliciousness. For dessert, besides cake, truffles, gelatin and some fruit, we had filhoses, rabanadas, sonhos and bilharacos.
Of course, Cristmas is not that magical if children are not there playing around, running, jumping and laughing. Luckily I have little cousins who I love to play with.
We all gave presents to each other… I mean… Santa Claus gave us all presents (I hope children do not see this). And I got really nice things that I needed. One of my favourites was a DSLR camera, wich, among so many other things, will be awesome for blogging.
I feel really blessed for having the family I have. Spending Christmas with everyone reminds me of that.
