My cousin (left) and I (right) pose for a photo during our family Christmas Eve party, which is held at my house every year. The whole family chooses to get dressed up on this occasion, some even shopping for new outfits to wear. When we celebrate Christmas, we celebrate big…and in style. Not to mention that nice clothes make for nice family photos by the Christmas tree.
I wanted to wear something that reflected my family’s VIBRANT holiday spirit. And believe me, the night was vibrant. From my aunts dancing to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”, to my cousins and their parents doing the choreography to “Jai Ho” at the end of Slumdog Millionaire, to my Grandpa and dad singing a duet version of Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” – the night was full of highlights. Amidst the chaos, the laughs, trays of food, and piles of gifts, the best thing about Christmas is being with FAMILY. We’re definitely a fun bunch! And I am so blessed and thankful to have them in my life. =)
