The Spirit of Chrimbo

Good Times on Xmas Eve

It was all about the Orphan Christmas celebrations this year.  No turkey, no decorations but a whole lot of amazing people.  From the Xmas Eve house party to the Kiwi Christmas on the beach, I can say without a shadow of a doubt that it’s the people that surround me that made my chrimbo magical this year.   It was an odd mishmash of travellers just passing through to people indefinitely extending their stay in New Zealand but who would have thought they would be the ones to form my family this holiday season.

The lesson that I’ve learned is that Christmases may come and go and people might come in and out of my life but at the end of the day its worth getting lost in the moment and enjoying those around me however brief.  And if I’m very luck – I may just meet the odd person or two that get me and decide to stick around for a lifetime.
