Happy Holidays. Hope everyone has a great Christmas.
Christmas was a little different this year for me. I was unable to go home to LA to be with my family. It strange being in Haiti without my family and my family felt my absence as well. My brother, Harley and I make Christmas what it is.
I loved being with my boyfriend on Christmas. It was our first Christmas together, but it was not the same. I did not feel like it was really Christmas. Next year, I will go home and try to bring my boyfriend with me.
I missed our Christmas Eve dinner, especially the delicious ham so Chris got a pig which was killed and we will be eating a lot of pig in different ways.
Our Christmas in LA are part of tradition. Every Christmas Eve, my brother gets his gifts, wraps them on Christmas morning. Christmas morning, I wake up and try to wake up everyone else up. Tell Harley to finish wrapping. This year, they were still sleeping at 9:30, which is not normal. We open the presents, eat left overs, nap, watch movies, eat, sleep, eat and sleep and take a Christmas hike.
I missed being with my family. Presents are nice, but to me being with my family is enough. At least, I will see my family in February for a few days which I am excited for.
