Christmas on the island

The people of Curaçao love parties, decorating, colors and glitter. So yes, Christmas decorating is a big thing here. I thought it would be fun to show you, so I took pictures whenever I saw something.
Enjoy!

Adding today to a post I prepared two weeks ago: 
Gosh, I miss Curaçao! I feel "torn between two lovers" right now. Enjoying my time with family here, part of me settling right back into The Netherlands and not wanting to leave them again, but also counting down the days until we can go back. I miss... everything. The sun, the heat, the smells, the sounds, the people, the house...
Since Curaçao is where we live and we are going back (we have to - we are not Dutch citizens anymore), that's actually a good thing, isn't it?

  1. Such a cute look at your new world. Home is where our heart is, and now your heart belongs to your Island. It is where you know T is better off and your new home is.
