Today, several people from my hostel planned a Christmas Eve Dinner. I walked to the grocery store with Sam and Kim from Alaska, Carolina from France, and Magnus from Sweden to buy supplies. Town was surprisingly busy. There weren't many Christmas decorations anywhere, which combined with the warm weather, really didn't make it feel like Christmas.
Tonight, we ate our dinner: roasted chicken, sausage, olives, salad, deviled eggs, shrimp, sangria, and an ice cream cake for dessert. It was a big feast, and it was nice to hang out with some people from my hostel. Otherwise, not much was going on today. I figured Christmas Eve and Day would be lost causes to attempt to do anything productive anyway.
