An Nou Fericit! Happy New Year!

Hey Guys,

So this week was pretty great! It was Christmas! We got to visit a lot of members and carol to them. Apparently, here in Romania, when you carol for someone, they feed you food and sometimes even a whole meal! Someone described it as trick or treating for adults, haha. We ate a lot of homemade Prajituri (little cakes) and Sarmale (minced meat, rice stuffed into a rolled pickled cabbage) (look on the internet for more info). This is some good stuff for sure! 

We got stuffed by everyone because the culture here is to serve your guests like really well and so they are always pushing you to eat more and more, haha. The holiday season was a blast for sure! 

Random thing about Romania that you probably didn't know. They don't have 90 degree PVC pipes here but 87 degree. And that is your random fact for the week! Being a plumber's son must make this fascinating. Still love you. Mom ox

I hope you all have a great New Year's and that you all lose that 15 pounds you want to lose for your New Year's resolutions! 

Love you all,
