Smorgasbord Reblog- Christmas Posts from Your Archives – It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas by Darlene Foster.

I hope everyone is gearing up for the holidays, however they are celebrated. Check out my thoughts and pictures of my first real Christmas in Spain, written two years ago! My time flies when you are having a good time.

I’ve left a reply to your comment on my blog but to save you going to look for it … It would be lovely to meet you when/if you make that trip. We will be away for a while in the New Year but back in April. x
PS We live in Henstridge (Somerset), your friend might know it.

Thanks, Barbara. I will keep that in mind. Are you going to visit the grandchildren?

I enjoyed reading that again, thank you.

Thanks for reading it again. ❤

It was a pleasure 🙂

I remember this post. I do love how the Spanish don’t focus as much on commercialism as family and community!

It is a nice way to celebrate Christmas. Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas season!

I am smiling at the thought of the neighbours looking happily at your decorated palm. you never know you may start a whole new tradition! Wonderful that Spain is not as commercialized. It is the one thing about the holidays that makes my eyeball twitch is the push that buying things somehow makes life better. How about a good present of kindness for strangers instead?

I have noticed a couple other houses have a string of lights on their hedge so perhaps we have started something. I don’t miss the craziness of a North American Christmas (and I was as bad as anyone!) Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas!!

Best wishes to you as well Darlene. I have made a big shift this year and we are leading a far more relaxed pace.
