I was born in Hungary, and for us, Christmas always meant Christmas Eve.
It’s a tradition my parents and I continued after coming to Australia, so The Offspring and I just finished my version of Duck a l’Orange, roast chicken with mushroom stuffing, braised brocolini and chocolate mousse cake for dessert. But life is all about compromise and adaptation so the presents won’t be opened until tomorrow morning, then we’ll join the rest of the family for a traditional [Aussie] Christmas lunch.
Wherever you are, and whenever you celebrate Christmas, don’t stress too much and just enjoy the company of loved ones [and good food].
Kellemes Karácsonyi Ünnepeket kívánunk mindenkinek!
