Happy holidays


It is Christmas Eve and being Swedish it means I celebrate Christmas today, but I have to wait until tomorrow for ­­Santa to visit me in Fiji. Being away from my family and close friends at the holidays is a personal challenge, but celebrating Christmas in Fiji is such a fantastic opportunity that I couldn’t say no. To all my friends around the world: I wish you a joyful, and peaceful Christmas!
Merry Christmas from Fiji! //Marianne

    • Lisa, it sounds like you have had a wonderful Christmas. I had lots of invitations but declined most of them. One of them was to celebrate Christmas in a fijian village, and if I had come they would have slaughtered a pig in my honor. Now the pig gets a chance to live a little longer, :).

      In Sweden we’ve many traditions around Christmas, and even though I like many of them, some of them don’t suit me at all. Therefore, I chose to have a very relaxed Christmas this year and for once I’ve prioritized my needs above others.

  11. It’s probably warm in Fiji and you might be celebrating Christmas in bikini. Merry Christmas and happy time in Fiji.

  12. I am sure a lot of us would like to spend our holidays in Fiji. Thanks for sharing your trip with us. Happy Holidays!

  13. Thanks for reading-I am having trouble again-getting anything published on wordpress-nothing works! Any ideas? beebeesworld

    • I wish I could help you, I’ve myself constant problems with wordpress. Some days I am close to giving up my blogging because one post can take several hours, :(.

  14. And a very merry (and belated) Christmas to you, Marianne!!

  15. I hope the recent hurricane didn’t disturb you too much. I know how it feels to be far from friends and family on the holidays. It is a challenge. Best wishes for a happy new year! Russell
