Christmas music is playing in the larger super markets.Â Some bigger establishments have yards of green and red ribbon decorating their building facades, doors, or gates.
Our house has a small fake Christmas tree with an inflatable Santa hanging on it.Â Apparently the green lights are all dead, so there are only red lights in the main room.Â This creates something of a red-light district effect.
I will make cookies and coffee cake for Christmas morning.Â We’ve been invited to a friend’s house on Christmas afternoon.Â She told us to bring our swimsuits so we can go swimming later.
Tonight I will make a nice dinner for Eric and I; salmon in a coconut milk (from fresh coconuts!).Â People here usually party with friends on the holidays, instead of spending it indoors with family.Â I won’t be surprised if we end up going out for a beer!
