I always look forward to this time of year. I don’t celebrate Christmas as I am not a Christian, but I do enjoy the Christmas spirit that my community shows. I enjoy seeing the festive spirit in my students and neighbors. This time of year also means that I get to spend more time with grand kids!
I plan on doing craft projects with my grand daughter. We will probably do some bead work and coloring.
I will also be doing what I love most which is cooking! I am planning meals for family dinners. For appetizers, I will be making khasta kachori, papdi chat, and masala peanuts. For desserts, I will make gulab jamun, gajar ka halwa, pineapple and cherry cobbler (my friend made this for me and everyone liked it). For dinner, chola battura is my younger son’s favorite. And one night this season I will prepare an Italian meal. Some of my neighbors have done a great job decorating their homes with Christmas lighting. We like to drive around to see the Christmas decorations.
