My best friend Eliza is in Singapore right now visiting her parents. They live there for 6 months and in the States for 6 months. Her Mom was telling me that she missed the way the States did Christmas. I said I missed the way Europe did Christmas. Less commercial, more simple, more old fashioned a little more refined. I love States side Christmas too, the excess can be very exhilarating. Its fun to see all the differences.
