Eve by candlelight...

Christmas Eve.
An evening with friends.
Unfortunately without family.
We had some time to mingle.
A lovely dinner.
Turkey. Mashed potatoes. Gravy. Cranberry Sauce. Salad. Green bean dish.
The works.
And a dessert for those who still had room of fruit and jello.
There's always room for jello in my books.
Then we did our team gift exchange.
Everyone got each other little gifts, so we exchanged and opened.
Then we were joined by more expats for our Christmas video: Elf.
And there were more treats to enjoy; cookies, mince pies, mulled wine.
Following the movie we moved out into the candle lit gazebo.
Time for our Christmas Eve service.
A humurous skit with Mary, Joseph and the angel.
A time to remember that He descended deep so that we may ascend high.
He came to earth to die, so that we may have life.
