Day 23: Only 6 days 'till Xmas

I'm starting to get depressed 'cause nobody comments on my blog. Has anyone noticed I try to write as frequently as possible?

But on a totally different matter, It's only 6 days left to Christmas!!! We have had our Secret Santa at the office and I got my Superman Returns DVD, and the Christmas Party was held at Antigua Hacienda de Tlalpan, one of the most exclusive restaurants in the city. The food was absolutely delicious and more than abundant, since I couldn't finish the main course (!). There was live music and all you wanted to drink, including a superb sweet sparkling white wine for the company's toast. Definitely, one of the best parties ever.

On the other hand, my family held a wonderful get-together, with piƱata, prank presents and sit-down dinner. It wasn't exactly like the good old times, when we all exchanged presents, but we kept the good spirits, anyway.

I'm currently looking forward to the turkey and the wonderful apple salad. There can't be Christmas without it. It's part of our family tradition. I hope the menu can live up my expectations, 'cause this is gonna be the last time I'll allow myself to eat whatever I want in any quantity my stomach can resist. Reason, of course, New Year's purpose to go on a diet (well, at least try again as hard as possible).

My wishes to Santa? Keep in good health, get a better job next year, a new Wii console and a couple of days off to recover from all the partying.

I know exactly how you feel about the lack of comments. When I started out I felt it sometimes pointless since it seemed no one read the blog. What's the point if no one cares what you have to say?

A sure way of getting comments is by visiting other blog and commenting if you like what you read. Of my short time at blogging, I've forged quite a few friends with my blog.

I like your blog by the way. It's an interesting perspective into Mexican life :). Living in Britain, I don't get to meet a lot of Mexicans.

My Christmas is very secular. No tree, no traditions, nothing. Kinda depressing really lol. But lots of parties. The presents I get don't come wrapped but I don't really mind.

Keep up the good blogging. I'm sure to revisit this blog.

I agree with Jingoistic on this.

I don't celebrate Christmas because festivals and occasions like birthdays don't mean much to me except for the fact that they are excuses for me to do something nice for the people I love and care about, because I am sure on usual days if I surprise them with gifts they would certainly give me a long speech on how I should not spend my money unnecessarily on them, though I know that deep down they are really very delighted and appreciative. But when you do something nice for the people around you on festivals and special occasions, they can't reject or 'lecture' you about it. :)

Anyway, merry Christmas in advance and may all your wishes come true!
