Feliz Navidad!

We want to wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of our hearts

sunny 25 °C


To our dear friends and family

This is a brief (for me) blog posting to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. We are so happy to have Danny, Alex and Alanna with us in Mexico for Christmas and New Years. Christmas Eve is the big holiday here - a family gathering of food and fireworks - December 25th is just another day. We made a feast tonight of guacamole, chicken, rice, roast potatoes, tortillas and veggies - enjoyed on our deck, while listening to the sounds of Sayulita.

A few hours ago, Santa Claus drove by, cushioned in the back of a light-bedecked truck - "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" played from the loudspeaker. As fiestas go, Christmas Eve is quiet - all we can hear at 11:00 pm is the sound of children singing and the odd firecracker. We are thinking this may truly be "Silent Night", as we haven't heard a peep from the neighbourhood dogs.


Tomorrow we will begin the day with a beach walk, and then back through the jungle into town. We'll make a few phone calls home, then spend the afternoon surfing, swimming and boogie boarding. It doesn't feel like Christmas, but it does feel very special.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Love Ginny and Stephen

Merry Christmas to you too. Disgusting that you have to endure another dry, sunny day as we have the most dismal, dreary, cold day in Toronto, Anne and Don

Hope all of you had a lovely Christmas Day together. It sounds wonderfully relaxing to me ... a perfect way to spend the day!

Feliz Navidad from the hinterland! It looks like you guys are having a muy beuno down together, and soaking up that glorious heat. (Sunscreen perhaps, Danny and Al#1?!)

We're really enjoying your fantastic posts, Ginny & Steve. A perfect mix of humour, reflection, and observation.

Much Love,
D & A
