How I Spent my First Christmas in Melbourne

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

I've been in Melbourne almost 4 years now, but I'd always spent the summer holidays back home with my family, which meant that Christmas was spent with the family, too. Last year, we had a blast prancing around in colourful afros and singing Christmas songs (and just about every other fast song ever written). You can read about it and see some pictures in this blog post.

This year, I decided to stay back in Melbourne for a while (don't ask me why, I'm a little confused as to why myself). So, I experienced my first ever Christmas in Melbourne.

On Christmas Eve, we went over to Jin's place for dinner with his family and friends. We had a really yummy dinner, and watched Christmas with the Kranks (and I watched a little 'Bunnies of the Playboy Mansion'). I don't have any pictures, unfortunately, but it was lovely and homey.

After, I came back home and spent Christmas with my family (sort of)! I was on Skype with them, and I participated (as best I could) in the celebrations over webcam :)

This is how I spent my Christmas Eve!

They sang and boogied, and we chatted every once in a while. Not quite the same as being there, but it came in a decent second.

Oh, and the See 'brothers' got reunited. It was pretty funny because Winston greeted Jason in a doggy mask, something Mich picked up before the party.

I spent Christmas day with the boyfriend. We just stayed home, had two good meals, and watched a bunch of movies together  :)

How was your Christmas? I hope you're all enjoying the holiday season!
