A Different Christmas
“Return to Bethlehem”: This is a church’s re-enactment to give people a deeper understanding of the social and cultural context of Christmas in the days of Jesus. Interesting experience!
Houses decorated for Christmas: You have to see it to believe how some houses are elaborately decked out in lights. And the newspaper would feature a list of must-see houses for people to visit. We visited 5 houses in 1 night just to soak in the Christmas mood – people milling around the streets, homeowners giving out lollies, appearance of santa at some houses etc.
Christmas Eve Dinner: In this virtual age, snail mail has become a luxury. So thanks to those of you who made the extra effort to send us cards. A special shout-out to Wendy and BB who surprised us with gifts in the mailbox.
On Christmas Day: We set off on a scenic drive along the Indian Ocean, visiting different beaches and finally, stopping to watch the beautiful sunset @City Beach.
