Christmas in Cape Town

This year was the first year I have ever spent away from Tennesee and away from the whole family. Mama was here and I had my new CT family and it was still very special. The weather was incredible. We swam on christmas!

The vibe of Cape Town during Christmas is pretty incredible. There is not the pressure of American Christmas where it is focused around gifts. Rather, people just spend quality time with family and try to get outdoors or have a gathering. We went to two and they were both so wonderful and relaxed. We also attended a Christmas Eve service at my parents old church and then I went on Christmas Day with G and his brothers.

During the day of Christmas Eve, we spent time with another girl from our hometown who was away from family. Us ladies spent the day at the pools and drank rosé. It was truly divine.

What did your family do on Christmas? Do you have any traditions that are different?
