Gearing up for the holidays

Today is the 23rd - what Norwegians tend to call "Little Christmas Eve" or "the day before the Day". Traditionally a day for decorating the Christmas Tree, eating rice porridge and the last panic over presents. And here I am in Yei, being Duty Officer and all...

Even if tomorrow is planned as a normal day in the Team Site, I have managed to arrange for me to have a day off... well, a day with no patrols and just as little office work I can get away with. I'll celebrate Christmas by calling family and friends I think... and playing Christmas tunes at full throttle. In the mean time, I'll be assembling my very own 60cm tall plastic tree.

  1. That's a nice touch, HM. :) I'm sure it will be a good Christmas Eve tomorrow for you even being so far from home.
