holidaysYesterday began the holiday season so we thought we’d ask what your favorite is. Now another question is; is it the same one you had as a kid? Jeff’s is Christmas but his problem revolves around the fact that he still thinks of it with a child’s expectations. And in Colombia Christmas is all about partying till you drop not what Jeff enjoys. Now some people love Halloween which is referred to as Children’s day down here and if you’re careful you can have a really good time with your kids. Just remember not everyone wearing a mask he a good guy. Thanksgiving was Jeff’s second favorite Holiday because he spent it with family. He’s tried to keep it going down here but people just aren’t into it. Then we have New Years Eve which in the US has become a night to out and enjoy and over priced dinner with friends. In Colombia it’s just another day to get drunk and be stupid. The rest of the Holidays really don’t mean much to the average Colombian since they don’t get the day off unless they work in an office. People do take some time off depending on whether the day will be slow or not. One thing about Colombia and the holidays you don’t see a lot of high prices unless you go to an American style mall. Ok so you know what Jeff likes I on the other hand prefer the one that result in people sleeping late and staying quiet. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin Colombia.

    Christmas is my favorite I feel the same about it now as I did a kid I love the feeling of it – the rest they could just wipe off the calendar
