Outside the Blogging Life

I did a lot of travelling this past week for Christmas. My family celebrates Christmas on Christmas Eve. We have a Hungarian inspired dinner with cabbage rolls, schnitzel, red cabbage, stuffed mushroom caps, nokedli (Hungarian dumplings), Lecsó (pepper-tomato stew), and fish soup.

It can take a long time for us to make dinner as the fish soup and the cabbage rolls take 3-4 hours to cook. After we eat dinner, we open all of our presents while we munch on desserts and tea.

Growing up I didn’t have a lot of friends who were European and didn’t really understand why we did our Christmas this way. I’ve come to really appreciate it, it also gives us time on Christmas Day to wash the dishes and put them all away; sometimes it’s an all-day affair even though there are only four of us!

This year my boyfriend’s family had their Christmas on Christmas Day, so I left that morning via the train. It took us about 4-5 hours to open everyone’s presents; there’s about 13 or 14 people who are there. It seems to take forever and I wasn’t feeling it this year for some reason. Hopefully next year they come up with a better way for everyone to open their presents so it won’t take 5 or 6 hours.

I came back to my dad’s house on Friday and I will be spending New Year’s here for the first time in ages. So far I’ve been reading lots and sleeping in as well as re-organizing my room.

How did you spend the holidays? Do you have any New Year Resolution? What’s  your favourite part of the holidays?
