Christmas Eve 2014 with the Vergaras

 We spent Christmas eve at the Vergara home.  Hno Vergara’s name is Marcopolo and Hna. Vergara’s name is Berenice. Christmas dinner begins late for most households here and we think they adjusted their schedule a bit for us and we ate at 8 p.m. instead of it being later.  Their son, Eduardo and his girlfriend, Miriam was there plus Berenice’s father.  Our dinner was spaghetti, scalloped potatoes with ham and a pork roast with a banana cake for dessert.  They had several liters of soda for us to choose to drink.  Last year we had gone to the Vergara home on New Year's Eve and had taken our family’s traditional Banana Slush and we offered to bring it for Christmas dinner and they were happy since especially Eduardo has fond memories of the slush.

                                They gave us a ride home about 10:30, and
                           by 11:00 we went to bed even as fireworks continued.


  1. What's behind the big curtain in the Christmas tree room? Is it a room divider?

  2. Nope. That is a curtain to an outside window.
