It’s Christmas Eve, the day when most Portuguese have their big family dinner and open gifts. My brother-in-law is here for a visit, to our son’s great delight, and our dinner is roasting/simmering/refrigerating. The house is full of good smells, and if there aren’t a great number of gifts under the tree, it doesn’t matter because each of them will be received with delight. (Especially the one I got for my wife, which I can’t tell you about because she reads this blog.)
I wish all of you a bom Natal, and hope that you are enjoying these special days.
