Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays!

Hope you all have a couple of days off work? It's a two-week vacation for me, yeehaw! :)

D and I went grocery shopping at 7:15 this morning. Gosh, I hate getting up that early on days I don't have to work! Afterwards, I went back to bed for another hour, hehe.

We had a late breakfast at ten, before we headed out downtown for a little pre-Christmas celebration. In Germany, we celebrate on Christmas Eve. The 25th and 26th are traditionally reserved for visiting family and friends.

D and I will have cake, coffee, and hot chocolate in a little while. In the early evening, we'll exchange presents (a jacket, a book, and the new AC/DC album for D, the Nintendo 3DS XL, Tetris, and perfume for me. - Why a 3DS XL? Well, it's easier to handle for people age 30+, you see?).

For dinner, we'll have salmon and spinach. D wants to watch a concert by Helene Fischer on tv later tonight and I plan on playing Tetris. 

D's mom will visit tomorrow and on Wednesday we'll visit my parents. 

What's your Christmas schedule?

Merry Christmas to all of you! 
Fröhliche Weihnachten!


  1. My husband works today from 11 AM to 7 PM. I will spend the day cleaning (I have not done anything since we came back from Cancun last week), and cooking a traditional turkey dinner. Except that the turkey is a boneless roast, because it is less trouble and there won't be leftovers to deal with. Tomorrow, we visit my family on my father's side, but at lunch time. They always entertain at lunch time, I never really understood why.

    1. I actually prefer boneless, too. (Because I get sick looking at bones, really.)

      My family prefers lunch time, too, which I don't like much.

  2. Happy holidays to you and D. I read that Nutella is very popular for breakfast in Germany. Do you have it? Helene Fischer has a great voice and now I have to learn about Tetris. A nice song I found recently is "Abenteuerland" by Pur. I'm not religious, but visit a big church beside me. They have many events for Xmas.

    1. Thank you! :)

      I love Nutella. Yes, it's widely popular.

      Tetris is a pretty cool puzzle game. I used to play it on my first Gameboy all the time, back in 1990. I'm glad there's a remake now.

      I'm not religious, either, although my family is.

      Have a great day & thanks for commenting.
