Christmas celebration South American style


Christmas Eve dinner for 23.
Each family within the family (example: dh´s cousin Claudia with her husband and three kids is considered a family, us four are another family and so on) brings a dish or two to share. 
At midnight a few fireworks were lit and Papá Noel (our name for Santa) left all these presents. ;) 
Time for Christmas sweets and cider. Pan dulce (panettone), turrón, sugar and chocolate covered peanuts and almonds, Christmas cookies ... Yums!
Back home at 3.30am for a bit of a sleep and then ... more food! Lol! 

Notice the T-shirts? Thirty something degrees Celsius today. Good for cold left overs. The same 23 again and we still have conversation topics and motives to laugh. Like the water battles. :)
