As we break in our new toys and recover from our eggnog hangovers, Aaron and I are beginning to think about next year’s Christmas. We depart for our crazy journey next summer, and we will be travelling for (at least) a year. That inevitably means we’ll be in another country for my favorite holiday. Where should we celebrate it?
Christmas means a lot to me and my family. It’s the one time of year when we all come together to exchange gifts, eat far too much food, and socialize and laugh over games and drinks. In America, it’s a family holiday, and offices across the country are closed for multiple days for the celebration. We decorate trees in our living rooms, and we hang lights all throughout the cities. It’s a time of giving and joy and coming together.
I love Christmas.
Spending a year abroad, there’s every chance we’ll spend the holiday in a foreign country. And we know that not everyone celebrates it the same as we do.
