Christmas eve party and day

So the christmas eve festivities started off at Cheryl's house where she found a stock of alcohol I can't remember what we're eating/drinking/doing here as I got a little merry.
People chilled out everywherre to movies, music and playstaion
Thats right, I finished my wine and champagne so I was drinking beer out of a wine glass.
Chrimbo decorations can be found in Korea
The big screen in your own home. We watched a Dr Seuss version of the Grinch and White Christmas to get us in the mood.
Thats right we got salmon and turkey
The chefs did a good job and beleive me they had small facilities
A toast to christmas
My first helpings
God knows how much Sunny and I had eaten at this point.


Egg nog. I've never had it before and believe it to be an american custom. All I know is that it had a lot fo rum.
Not sure when or where the chocolate fight started.
The dancing happened tp any song that was playing with Sunny's best english just knowing 'sexy' so thats what she sang. I both joined in and copied but you don't want a photo of that.
We then let off a few hand held fireworks as it got closer to midnight.

When we could get them lit that was.
Before a spot of carol singing in the centre of Geochang. Most people had headed off to bed or to make phone calls by now as it was well into christmas morning. About 10 koreans joined us a bit later.

oops got my pics out of order. Some of the koreans bought us a load of makkoli (korean rice wine) to finish the night with. you drink it out of the bowls and it's served in the kettles.
Me on christmas morning with all the pressies.
Looks like I was a good boy and santa found me.

You got a lot of presents and seemed to have a great dinner - hmmm salmon, I had that the other day.
I got your comment, thanks! I hope you enjoyed Xmas, at least you seemed to be enjoying yourself.

I saw a glimpse of South Korean New Year celebrations and they were GRAND :)
