Holiday Cards

It’s Holiday Card time! Every year I always make my own card and send over to my families, friends and colleagues. It’s more practical since I have families in my hometown and friends across the countries and I want to make sure to share some Christmas wishes with them. There’s nothing quite like a hand painted and brush lettering Christmas card with a personal message inside, so check out my collection of holiday cards this year!

Bon Appetit!

As the climax to end the year 2013, I headed out to France early morning of 24th December to spend christmas eve with Victor’s families. The last few weeks of December had been such a crazy whirlwind at work, and I’m looking forward to christmas holiday. It turned out to be a lovely and very relaxing holiday. I felt bit nervous seeing his whole families at first time but they are very sweet. I extremely enjoyed festive foods and mouthwatering french foods. I am signed in as a french food lover! Here’s the recap some of my favorites:

Appetizers 

Victor said I won’t miss scallops and snails during this festive season. Some of people might find it terrible but definitely not for me!

We headed to Franche-Comte, a countryside in France where most of Victor’s families live. They have good camping bread, cheese, champagne and wine.

Long time during medieval people in France-Switzerland mountains melt their ‘bad cheese’ and eat along with meats. Nowadays, people melt their good cheese and eat as meals.

Typical french festive cakes/ ice cream cakes. No wonder why my jeans get tighter after eat!

Another french tradition- the first sunday after Christmas, they share a piece of almond cake in family or school. If you are lucky you will find a figure in a piece of cake that you eat. Then you will be entitled as a king/ queen with crown of course! And you may select your king or queen and give a special kiss! French kiss maybe?

And I’ve got it!

I wish you all have an ultimate holiday! x
