Christmas 2011

It was a good Christmas!  Here are a few photos.  The crowns are a tradition that my parents picked up from some English friends.  I've Googled the meaning behind the crowns, but it seems like there are a lot of different explanations for them, and I can't seem to find a consensus on which one is correct (maybe English royalty presiding over celebrations?  maybe symbols of the birth of Christ the king?  maybe just a marketing gimmick created by the makers of the Christmas crackers that the crowns come in?)
Anyway, Dia de los Muertos in October.  Crowns and crackers for Christmas.
It's been a good year for some very cool new traditions.
Thanks to Mom and Dad for hosting!
