In a wink it was gone! Now it’s only one year until next time. I really can’t complain though as my chilean/american christmas lasts for three beautiful days. Same procedure as every year. Only this year we were 18 people, one more person with my sister Violeta’s and Roger’s baby Yindi Lo. It was nice, time of peace and good cheer with all political talk left aside (this year). It’s not easy being the chatelaine I tell you, it takes me a few weeks to prepare everything and when everybody leaves after three days I look like a troll doll (penntroll). The house is now quiet and as I sit in front of the fireplace relaxing, I do find myself missing everybody. I really LOVE having my big family around me <3

tallee-signI hope you all had a marvelous, wonderful, restful Christmas too. Here are some photos I took while doing our christmas photo sessions. First out is my daughter Adina.

Being a tricultural or mixed child has made me very aware and thankful of the values and perceptions of different cultures. Never did I experience or have a conflict with the feeling of not “fitting in” during my childhood. I have felt Chile, U.S.A and Sweden all to be my homes. I often think about this. What this has meant to me as person, my way of thinking and seeing things. During christmas this thought is very vivid.

Today my house is very quiet, but from christmas eve until yesterday we had 20 people in our home for three days. Swedes, americans and chileans. A sweet mixture of languages, music, food and traditions. The same topic across the table changes from spanish to swedish and back in one second. The conversation to my left is about CIA’s assassination of commander Che Guevara and his guerillas in Bolivia and to my right I vividly join in to discuss the complaints about muslims. My statement is this; There are extremists in every political ideology and religion, that believe violence is the answer,  but they don´t account for everyone who share those beliefs. All this bullshit and bad talk about muslims…. I believe this counts for poor and discriminatory education. Anyway, across the table the conversation is “lighter”. Whitesnake is coming back to Sweden Rock Festival… again this summer. Some of my guests feels that David Coverdale’s voice is not what it used to be and therefore should not be welcome back to the festival. Oh boy…I must have a soft heart…Mr Coverdale is always welcome : )

Table is filled with food as usual when my stepdad Joaquin is involved. Generosity himself! A sweet mix from all the corners of the world and more extraordinary is that 70% is vegetarian food, because both my sisters and I decided to not eat animals a few decades back. A swedish christmas CD spreads the mood for an hour and then everyone gathers in front of the TV to enjoy a full Live sold out concert from OPETH’s 25-anniversary tour on Royal Albert Hall in England. Guitarist Fredrik is family to me, and is of course pleased with the choice of TV entertainment.

How was your christmas?
