Expat christmas

While our stockings may not be hung by the fire with care, our silver tinsel christmas trees, unique ornaments collected from near and far, and paper cut-out stars have made an appearance in our effort to be festive.  I'm on my third viewing of The Family Stone, and of course Elf is in the queue.  Hot chocolate, marshmallows and candycanes are in the cupboard.  All these things don't quite make up for the fact that we will be half-way around the world from our families on Christmas, but makes it a little easier to swallow.

Are you an expat?  How do you celebrate the season in your home away from home?

  1. I'm taking a trip on christmas weekend to Jeju island to keep away the christmas blues. Also have a pink christmas tree and LOTS of hot cocoa to keep me company ^^ it's still hard though, you're right.
