Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

27 12 2011

My friend Anani came up from Córdoba to send the Christmas weekend with me. As is the Spanish tradition, we celebrate with a big family meal on the Noche Buena (Christmas Eve). Being orphans here in Spain, Anani and I went round to the Knowlsons where several other orphans from the church congregate each year.

We had a reading from Luke, verse for verse n Spanish English and Romanian (and some stylish acting on the part of the Bethlehem figurines…)

You can see me reprinting the Southern Hemisphere. One of the young guys decided the table decorations would do nicely as the Southern Cross on the canvas of my forehead.

Then Christmas Day, Anani and I had a bizarre mix of food for the Christmas diner. I did a tuna and ricotta pasta salad and a roast pumping green salad – with gingerbread and Almond Roca for dessert. Random, but tasty!

Then we finished the day off with a trip around to the Knowlsons for left overs and a play with their new Christmas games…
