Christmas from California

Home for the Holidays

Hey everyone! This is your auxiliar, Chelsea. Over the vacation, I spent two weeks in California with my family. To get there, I flew in an airplane for almost 14 hours! Although it was a long journey, I had a wonderful time at home.

Because my dad is Jewish, we celebrated Hannukah, as you can see from the picture of the Menorah. We lit one candle every night for 8 days and ate potato pancakes, called Latkes. Because my mom is Catholic, we celebrated Christmas together too! You can see the beautiful angel on our Christmas tree! The weather was about the same as it is here in Pilas.

While I was in my town, Sonoma, I visited with a lot of friends. I also went to the nearest big city, San Francisco and took pictures at the Golden Gate Bridge, which is famous around the world!

Because I was missing Spain when I was away, I decided to celebrate New Year's Eve with the Spanish tradition of eating 12 grapes at midnight. However, I had no grapes, so I ate 12 blueberries instead (arándanos).

Here are some pictures of the decorations at my house, a visit with my friends and the Golden Gate Bridge. I hope you enjoy!
