The day started with mummy's prayer and breakfast which is the yummiest part of the day. The palappam(laced dosa) and chicken stew,which is a tradition at all christian families
We all gathered in the portico(foyer) of the house for the firecrackers which was bought the day before and hidden from the kids. To the shopkeepers, suprise and wonderstuck eyes' the 1500 Rs worth of crakers was asked to be doubled in quantity which splashed a big blasts of crackers from his own eyes.
The started with big blasts of crackers which s done by the master cracker 'Gudu mathai' whom we fondly call Biju.But with the sound polution that he created , terrorised the peace of the RP Lane,our home ground.
The conclusion was a shower of big sounds and showers of small lights. We bid goodbye to 2008 x mas. Though we will not forget it either , we managed to leave good memories for kids to keep in their hearts, for a long long time.
