Christmas Day in Mexico

New Traditions, by Mirren

semi-overcast 19 °C

A week ago we went to the market and chose a piñata for Christmas morning. We bought each other small gifts at the market to put inside the piñata. We woke up on Christmas morning eager to open our little presents. It took so many hits before it showed some cracks. We were a bit frustrated by that point so we just ripped it open.

Since we are trying to travel with our backpacks we did not bring many extra things. We used actual socks for our Christmas stockings. Fraser found one that did not have a hole yet!

We each got little toys and three little notes. One of them said we are going on a surprise adventure on Dec 26th! We also got tickets for the 1989 Taylor Swift Tour this summer. We are going with our friends, the McInnis family. I got new silver earrings and put them on right away!

We had fruit, Facetime'd family and had some quiet time to play with our new toys. We had nachos for Christmas lunch and headed out for a stroll through the town. We bought a few more little toys with our allowance money from the past few weeks.

We are making Shepherd's Pie for dinner, it doesn't have anything to do with the shepherds at Christmas... we just like Shepherd's pie!

It was a very different Christmas experience because there were only a few gifts each. The food was also different than what we usually have. But it was still good because we were all together.

Merry Christmas to everyone!
