Hi all, Christmas is a time to be with the ones you love, and I have the one I love with me at all times, to all the families out there who are not able to be with us at this very special time, our hearts go out to you.
God bless you all.

Love Mark and Louise xxxx

Well reading all your posts is very inspiring.
Our Christmas here in Michigan is all about family and friends. I sing at the Choir in our Church. We sing a beautiful Christmas Eve Mass if I may say so myself, and then again on Christmas morning at 10AM.
Lord knows there are plenty of charities to support. My children choose a charity and instead of gifts to one another they send the monies to the charity they choose each year.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

Hi Austin
The comments I made were meant to be just what the title says lol
We also raise funds for a local orphanage but always room for one more Very Happy you have to see some of the poverty here first hand to understand it,but it is getting better slow but sure, I have been into some of the worste places I have ever seen ( called bateys) not sure if thats how to spell it google is wonderfull though it will correct it, they make the barrios (google again look high class)
Anybody coming here to help the econony is always welcome if you need anyhelp or advice in the future just ask.

Sue

Christmas on the beach is fantastic your right, this year for us we have also got a invite to spend part of the day with a Dominican family in Munos, so looking forward to that also....
Back home the day was always spent at my house 18 to 20 family members, they still spend the day all together so one day !!!!!!! I hope to join the clan once more, I can put up with the cold ( just stay in lol )
But for now the beach with good friends and good food a small drink or 10 will do santa
bit early but a merry christmas to you all,hope the new year brings every thing you want drunken

With Christmas just around the corner maybe we can all share what makes this time so special for us & the town. Here's our contribution.

For Louise & myself it is about being with the one you love, having survived another year & knowing that we grow closer every day.

We both get great pleasure form having friends "around for dinner" on Christmas Eve, helping make what can be a lonely time of year for some full of joy & laughter.

It is also a time for our families, & if we can't be physically together we always make sure we can at least speak to the people who matter most, be it by phone or internet.

Christmas Day on the beach is a fantastic party & that's the time we all go into "gloat-mode" & call friends in the frozen north & utter the immortal line .... "how's the weather there?" heehee
