Merry Chistmas to all and Thanks for Reading the Devil

December 24, 2010

Even the Devil celebrates Christmas. Soon my family will arrive, we will have some nice drinks and then we will dig into our hallacas and pernil like most Venezuelans do. The group is getting smaller, as not only people leave for Christmas, but they also leave the country all together. We even know who will be next. At this rate, Christmas will soon be celebrated elsewhere.

But it will be a fine night, we will exchange presents, we will talk, laugh and we will try to ignore our surroundings for a few hours, we will stay up late, watch the impromptu fireworks and go to bed late for no other reason that we are happy to be together and we are all healthy.

And to you all, I wish that you have as much fun as I plan to have and get all your wishes tonight or tomorrow whichever you celebrate in your family.

Thanks for reading!

    Sorry I’m late with this, but God bless you Miguel, and hope you have wonderful day. The best of the holidays to everyone!

    For thousands of years, us Jews had an expression of hope:

    “Next year…in JERUSALEM!”

    May I please offer this up to my Venezuelan heroes, all of you guys?

    “Next year, in MIRAFLORES!”

    Undeterred by the Venezuelan passion for hallacas and pernil, my roast turkey is stuffed and in the oven. It is already golden and it smells “to die for”.

    Merry Christmas, Miguel and all of my friends and acquaintances whom frequent this blog/community. May we all know at least a small moment of peace and joy these season.

    Feliz Navidad everyone!

    I’m still confused to why Chávez has not renamed christmas to Simón Bolívarmas yet.

  15. Juancho Says:

    The scattering of mi familia is probably the worst part of the Chavez debacle. I’ve spent the last twenty New Years in Margarita. Now we’re scattered all over, and no Margarita. Que lastima.

    At least I can log in here and get a dose from the chamos.

    Feliz Nav. amigos.
