Christmas 2009

Abroad, it’s a bit difficult for me to go to midnight Mass like I normally do in the States, over the last couple of years, I’ve kinda gotten used to the disappointment of not experiencing midnight Mass. If you’ve never been to a Catholic midnight Mass, tag along with a friend, although I’m a bit biased. ^^

After Mass, the people who usually attend and help out at the English Mass had tea together, while we waited for the meal (turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, veggies, cranberries, and pumpkin pie) to arrive from Camp Casey. As soon as the turkey (and ham ewww) arrived, the guys went to work carving the meat 🙂

After a gift exchange and the usual gift drawing, I went to get some hot chocolate from Leonidas, unfortunately for me Myeong Dong was the most crowded that I have ever seen it in my life and so I ended up wearing a good portion of my chocolate 😦

  1. Then men always carve the bird, don’t they?

    I cry inside when I spill hot chocolate/coffee.

    Maggie always did it, but then again I don’t come from the normal of American households.

    I was actually a bit mad at all the people who weren’t walking in a straight line and walking wherever they felt like it. And then I calmed down and remembered it was Christmas.
