Instead I got to chow down on curried vegetables, beef curry, and curry vindaloo. And stuffing, and acorn squash, and cranberries. And ooly poli, and apple fritters and other deep-fried goodies.
But I didn’t get any crackers. Nor any turkey.
This is what happens when you celebrate Christmas far from your parents’ home with a Dutch woman and an Aussie.
But at least I got food-- lots of people in my area had no power for most of Christmas day-- and had to abandon turkeys in the oven.
So-- what was strange about your christmas?
