What It's Like to Celebrate Christmas on a Small Island

Having Christmas in a warm Mediterranean island is different than most countries. I live in Malta, a small island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. (If you don't know where it is, don't worry. You're not the only one, cause it's really small.) To bring you a little bit to my hometown, I decided to give you a glimpse of how Christmas is celebrated here in Malta. Mind you, some of them are not THAT exciting, but let's just go along with it, shall we?

1. Every year, people are still hopeful for snow. The best thing that was near to snow were small balls of ice that could have easily damaged my car. Also, Facebook posts saying,"IT'S SNOWING" are a must when these few graupels happen.

2. Since Malta is very small, it won't take you long to go from one place to another. Therefore, families are more tight-knit together. At Christmas, I feel our bond stronger than ever because we have a yearly tradition where we gather round and just eat lots of food and enjoy each other's company.

Something even worse is that you'll see the SAME people everywhere you go. But then again, it's nice to meet up with old friends. Also having your family and friends in one room is quite special, so I can't really complain. :)

4. Shipping to Malta is freaking EXPENSIVE. That's all I'm gonna say.
5. At the end of the day, if you're someone like me who is late in EVERYTHING, Malta is definitely the best place for you because if you're still working on perfecting your wing eyeliner, rest assured that you're going to still be on time for dinner cause you'll only have 10-15 minutes to arrive at your destination.
