International Festivities

The Christmas and New Year period is always a busy time, perhaps even more so for me as I’ve always celebrated two Christmases and on the odd occasion a second New Year too. So as always I celebrate my Croatian heritage with Christmas on the 25 of December and my Ukrainian roots with Christmas on 7 January. What made it particularly hectic in 2011/2012 was that I celebrated both in two different countries. Not to mention I cooked and prepared the traditional 12 course meal for Ukrainian Christmas Eve dinner. Yes 12 individual dishes...well actually 16 to be precise.

Rather than me tell you, let me show you my international festive season...
