We always celebrate Christmas Day with a family reunion. It’s nice to see relatives and families you haven’t seen for the longest time and it’s also nice to see them dressed in the exact same color you’re wearing. So every Christmas, we always have a theme and we don’t repeat the color the next year.
We wore Green in Christmas 2010, Red in Christmas 2011, and Blue in Christmas 2012. This year we were wearing FUCHSIA! Christmas Day 2013 is Fuchsia! I know, I know… seems like an odd color for Christmas but hey, whatever color gets the most votes, right???
Unlike last year where sis and I insisted on a Filipiniana Theme for Christmas Day lunch, this year’s lunch didn’t have one. It was simply pot luck and bring the most delicious dish you can think of. I think most people brought food they were craving for..haha..
Check out what we had..
Fried Chicken Lollipop
Orange Chicken Wings
Roasted Vegetables Pasta
Crab and Shrimp in Oyster Sauce
