Family news

No rain yet.

I went to the dawn mass as usual. Lot of folk there.

Joy and Ruby celebrated "Noche Buena" at her mom's with their family. The custom is to go to late evening mass and the come home to a huge family dinner. She will be here later this morning, so we can celebrate here.

Chano held an afternoon Christmas party here for the staff of his business and the farmers had another party at the meeting/traning center there.

The beggers and relatives and neighbors have starting coming to the door. Traditionally they come to wish you Merry Christmas (and the kids get a peso gift). Lolo used to love doing this, but not me: I placed the cook at the door to give out gifts, and we'll close up when we run out of money (usually by 10am).
