Happy Holidays!

In Georgia, the Holiday Season consists of Christmas, New Years, Orthodox Christmas, and Orthodox New Years. If you happen to be in Tbilisi during either New Years Eve – the 31st or the 13th – you can expect to hear fireworks exploding dangerously close to your house. Last January in Gldani the explosions were so loud and intense that I thought the Russians were attacking.

Last year we got a lovely gift bag courtesy of Georgia’s President. Rumor has it (by rumor I mean an official TLG email) that when we get back to Georgia this year, another such gift bag will be waiting for us. To be honest I regifted the chocolates last year – not that I didn’t want them, I just wanted my family in America to know how delicious Barambo Georgian chocolates are. The champagne became Mimosas for a Sunday brunch with some close TLG friends. Good times.

I’m rambling… anyway, whether you’re in Georgia or at home, celebrating no Christmases, or one Christmas, or two, I hope you’re having a lovely vacation from school!
