Last Christmas was a big Christmas for Charlie Brown and I, it was the first Christmas we would spend without our family while living in a foreign country. So we had to make sure it was extra special because it was going to be just the two of us. And also because both our families make Christmas so special it was going to be hard to do anything that would compare.
Two of my favorite gifts from last year were this lovely hand made card from Charlie Brown, and this
hand-made calendar which helped my count down the days from Christmas to our holiday to Thailand and Vietnam (he came up with the idea himself and I just think it's so sweet and thoughtful. Above each day was a Hershey's kiss)
Christmas in Korea is a little different to Christmas in the "West", I guess the holiday side of it isn't so big, so almost all of the shops were open. We took a bus up to Seoul early in the morning, enjoyed a big breakfast together at "the all american dinner" in Itaewon, before leisurly looking arround shops and buing a few odds and ends.

After dinner we caught a taxi and went for a ride around the city looking at all the Christmas lights.
Although Charlie Brown and I had a great time, and it was special because we got to spend it together, I think very little compares to a Christmas spent with family and friends and old traditions.
