Every year our family meets at our grandparent's home on the 25th December. We have a delicious meal and are giving presents to our grandparents and are gratefully receiving ours.

For the last couple of years I thought that year's christmas would be the last one in our broader family circle. I really hope that this one isn't our last shared christmas at all. All the more because 2007 brings a lot of change into my life as I will not be in Germany most of the time.
