Merry Christmas everyone. At Nana Juana marina in Guatemala we had a great group of people to enjoy Christmas eve and Christmas day.
On December 24th we enjoyed drinks and finger food with the sun setting and fireworks going off. Guatemalans celebrate Christmas on Xmas Eve and fireworks light up the skies when the sun sets through into the wee hour of the morning. We also had a gift exchange where a gift could be taken from someone else up to a maximum of 3 times. Lots of fun as you can imagine with some very imaginative gifts; the live chicken for one.
Wendy & Ken organizers of the gift exchange & Don with his new gift after his original was stolen.
On Christmas Day we had a big feast with 47 cruisers and had a great day which started early (6am) by getting the spit ready for our 30lb lamb and continued through to sitting around a fire at night telling stories and singing carols.
We had lots of helpers starting at 6am
Belinda had competition for eating the bones of the lamb.
Lots of food to eat…thanks to everyone bringing dishes to contribute to our amazing dinner.
April from Spirit of Argo had cooked a chicken for the feast too, so lots of food.
Elise the owner of the marina brought in horns, hats and masks to make for a fun night. Don’t the girls look great!
Happy New Years! Safe travels and enjoy 2016. Life’s what you make of it.
