We went to visit my brother in law's family last Saturday. My father in law came with his wife in the morning and we drove there together. As usual, I forgot to bring my camera. The place was in Mogyorod, not in Budapest. It was quite nice actually because the air is a lot fresher there.
On the 6th of December it was Szent Mikulas nap, or Saint Nicholas day. I've never heard of it until I came here. In Malaysia Christians only celebrate Christmas, there was no Santa Claus day. On Saint Nicholas day or Santa Claus day the children would get some chocolates supposedly given by Santa Claus. Bonnie had enough chocolates to feed an army. Okay exaggerating. :P But we had more than what we can finish. She doesn't like chocolates much, heavens knows why. I don't eat much chocolates much nowadays either.
On Sunday, that was yesterday, it was Eid ul Adha. We didn't do anything except for going out and buy more things for the house. To be frank even in Malaysia I do not really celebrate it. Well, maybe I'd cook rendang or curry to eat together with nasi impit for ourselves and the neighbours. But that's it. I wish to do a small open house for the family for the next Eid ul Fitri though. I hope that time we do not have to move again so can concentrate on the preparation for the occasion instead of preparing to move. :(
Bonnie's birthday will be on the 18th. Exactly a week before Christmas. Would be great to invite close family members to come. But since it's only one week away from Christmas, there are some thoughts that we just do it together with Christmas so that people don't have to come twice.
Gosh, December is sure full of events.
