I had the best Christmas ever! We went over to Geo's mom's house with Geo's older sister and her sister's husband. Geo's mom made a huge Puerto Rico feast from scratch. People are willing to pay her a lot of money since it's almost impossible to find good Puerto Rican food. She made pasteles, which are kind of like a tamale but instead of corn paste (masa) she uses bananas. She scraped bananas for days to get enough paste to make them. She also made a pork shoulder, rice with pigeon peas, and stuff I don't even know how to call them. The food was amazing. I got a couple gifts, which was really nice since they don't have to, Geo's sister got this really good headset, and his mom gave another to Geo's sister's husband, but he didn't need it and I did and he gave it to me! I was so happy. It gets better from there. After dinner his mom put on some salsa Christmas music in Spanish and we were all playing with this percussion set. it was a bongo drum, a tambourine, maracas and some weird thing you scrape and tap. We had so much fun playing with the music, dancing, some alcohol and cheesecake. I had SO much fun. I really felt like I was part of the family. At Geo's dad's house it's very formal, the only ones playing are the kids. Geo got me a nice watch for Christmas and I love it. I literally had the best Christmas ever.
