Christmas at my mom's (23rd) was awkwardly spent as usual with the step family- but after a few drinks and all of us watching "American History X" together (not your conventional christmas movie, but a good one nontheless) it turned out great.

At dad's (christmas eve) I cooked the feast, which was tiring, and fed 7 people, but we're still going to have tons of leftovers. Presents were opened, joy was had, it was very festive and warm. Nice christmas indeed.

And christmas day- I spent the day procrastinating my packing (I'm going to winnipeg today), doing my laundry, burning CD's and watching nonstop christmas movies by myself. Lazy day.

Cursing the guy that made vodka for a while, breaking the cooker, dropping my 300D (=oO), uhh... skateboarding with my brother. Then rolling down a really really big icey hill.

As ya do.

Did everyone have a good one ?!

First lunch (barbeque roasted turkey :)) at my parents house with the whole family there for once!! Then went on to my in-laws and cooked a paella as my contribution to the christmas dinner. Nice day all round - couldn't have been better :)

Now, strangely, it just started hailing (which is quite strange in the middle of summer in Melbourne).

Christmas Day luncheon celebrations (11.30am - 2.30pm) with some of my university colleagues from Ireland, England, Hong Kong & China ... at the Harbour Plaza Hotel in downtown Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province in China. (NOTE: Kunming is inland). All the western culinary trimmings, turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie were included. It was a pleasant change to eating Chinese food everyday with chopsticks.

At 5.30pm, the university arranged a couple of buses (for about 80 people)to take the foreign teachers and visiting foreign students to a dinner / Christmas performance in a fairly large restaurant. During the concert performance. I was called on to help draw the lucky door prizes, and also to lead some of the foreigners in a chorus of "Jingle Bells". There were a couple of very lean Chinese Santa Clauses on hand. It was all very civilised. The buses took us home by 10am.

Next day, there were more Christmas celebrations with others individually and in small groups on-campus. (The university population is approximately 12,000).

Did the friends and family thing during the afternoon/evening...and then I did the weirdest thing ever. My friends and I went to play bingo at a hall! It was soooo funny! Anyways, as odd as my Christmas was, it was great!

Cheers,
Katie ;)

A combination of work, getting stupendously drunk and a hugely surreal naked international snowball fight, all at the same time more or less.
