Christmas and New Year celebrations

The Christmas madness is over. Just kidding, there was no madness involved for us this year. We had some peaceful days of doing barely anything besides relaxing. Only on the 24th we made some Christmas cookies again as I had finished the last batch some time earlier once again.

So did we follow-up on our Christmas celebration plan? Certainly not. We skipped the whole music part of the plan due to our laziness and I guess we cut on some edges on the other points as well…besides all of that mother nature didn’t like us and gave us only rain the entire time.

Because my wife sometimes loves to make food, we had a great Christmas dinner and afterwards exchanged our gifts (yes, I managed to buy something fairly useful for her). On the other celebration days we visited some Chinese friends, had hot pot 火锅 and they played some 6 hours of mahjong 麻将(I was pushed to the living room to watch TV as I have no idea about the game).

Now it is just trying to figure out what we will do on New Year except of watching “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”. Maybe we celebrate with some friends or maybe alone, we shall see…

This was it for this year, I hope everyone had a great year or at least managed fine. I bet many of you have once again New Year’s resolutions and barely anyone will stick to it (But I will!).

I wish you all a Happy New Year and see you as lively as ever in 2014!

  1. This reminds me of my relatives back in Malaysia. A lot of them will play mahjong when it’s holiday season or when they have spare time on their hands. Yes, if you don’t know anything about the game it’s best to stay away. My relatives were always too engrossed in it to explain it all to me 😦

    Happy New Year! I just discovered your blog, I’m liking it so far and I look forward to reading more of it next year 🙂

    1. Mahjong seems to be an intense game, hours are passing by and they don’t even realize it. My mother in law used to play everyday several hours and she even got neck problems because of the sitting position. But she quitted playing, not because of her neck but because she was so bad in it that she barely won any game in several years…

      I am always glad to find a new reader and I hope to write more interesting things also next year 🙂
