Christmas 2011

The Dutch people celebrate Christmas for two days December 25 and 26. Most of the people celebrate christmas in their own house, only few went out for Christmas dinner. On the second day of Christmas they spend it by visiting family and friends. Yesterday evening my mother-in-law was here to join us celebrate this important event of the year. When my hubby came to pick her up just then she realized that she did not buy any gift for us. Never mind, she is already 84 years old and she begins to forget some things. But the most important she did remember the kids.
We had fondue. Chicken, pork tenderloin, fresh shrimps and salmon, meat balls and mushrooms were ready to be dipped in the hot oil (fondue pan). I like fondue because I do not need to stand in the kitchen for hours to prepare the dinner. My kids liked the shrimps, meat balls and mushrooms. I did not prepare any desserts because after dinner we had coffee and cocktail snacks. A cup of coffee machiatto was served by my hubby after dinner. Around 9 pm we had cocktail snacks. Grandma went home around 10:30 pm. I went to bed around 12 midnight. It was a fantastic evening!
How did you spend Christmas?

Christmas has also been a 2 day holiday here in Jamaica. I spent the time with my family. We had a delicious dinner and listened to lovely carols on the radio and watched television.

About this Blog

I make this blog for foreigners who will live in this country, THE NETHERLANDS. Foreigners who are engaged or married they have to learn a lot of things about their new home like the culture, architectures, landscape, government, dikes etc. Especially the Dutch language which is very important in their social life. It is very difficult if they cannot communicate with other people. Most people speak Dutch, only few speaks English.
For visitors and readers, this will give you an idea what this country is. This small country ranks no. 5 in the economic stability in EUROPE. Their architectures like palaces, castles, dikes, ports (air and sea) are amazing.
Their culture is very interesting.
