I haven't been in South Africa for Christmas since 2002... I usually come in January every other year, and so miss the warm Christmas I grew up with...
So, it has been really special to be here with my family to celebrate our Saviour's birth. I have immersing myself in Christmas concerts and carol singing, and it has been really fun! And of course being able to swim and be in warm weather when it is literally freezing in Bosnia is not too shabby either!
Today there was 14 of us for dinner at my parents' house, including my friends, Justin and Iris, who are here visiting from Holland. When everyone arrived, it was time to open the piles of presents:
Christmas crackers and silly hats!
