Christmas this year was really special. We had a Christmas Eve potluck dinner at Naomi’s (since her apartment is the biggest. :)) The food and company were great, and as our friend Andy said, “We did well (with making the food). Does this mean we’re real adults now?” Naomi made mulled wine (yum) and I made egg nog. We even had a secret santa where none of us correctly guessed who bought our gifts.
On Christmas morning, I skyped with my family (for 2 1/2 hours!) and in the evening, my boyfriend and I looked at the lights downtown. Christmas here is a big holiday for couples.
For New Year’s Eve, 10 of us went to a pension in Gangwha-do. It’s a couple of hours west of Seoul, but was a great to ring in the New Year. Last year, we stayed in Seoul for the New Year’s festivities, so we enjoyed getting out of Seoul this year.
I can’t believe 2012 is here and January is over! Last year was great and I can’t wait to see what 2012 has in store for me!
