1) Filo Family Christmas Parties
Still, even without them there was a pretty large gathering of extended families.
Because we were able to come home on Christmas Eve from the in-law's house
Having very little in common with the rest of my family and somewhat socially awkward when left on my own, I'm usually a wall flower at these gatherings. But I enjoy being in the company of everyone else and listening in on the "olds" crazy stories and jokes.
I manged to rope chuuchuu into being Santa, but there were so many presents to distribute that half the crowd got bored and went to eat some more.
