沖繩之後第一次過聖誕節

今年是我們一家人搬到沖繩之後第一次過聖誕節。傳統上日本人不會慶祝聖誕節。所以我們一家便和爸爸的潛伴們 渡過聖誕節。雖然他們有不同種族,屬於軍隊中不同職位及階級,但在水中,我們是一個大家庭,互相照顧對方。很多美軍的家人仍然在美國,所以在節日時,在沖繩的大家便會聚首一堂,以解寂寞。甚至在Facebook 邀請陌生的單身人來自家屋企一同食飯!這是一個非常之溫暖的傳統!

一早起身,我家肥妹仔便急不及待拆聖誕禮物。早餐後,爸爸便去潛水。媽媽和肥妹仔包餃子,包禮物。晚上一起去潛伴家中吃晚飯。主菜當然是火雞!但是其中一個潛伴是第二代越南人,所以有炸越南春卷!(順帶一提,在沖繩只有一處地方可以買到中式臘腸,就是美軍基地內!)
飯後一同玩遊戲,渡過一個非常開心的聖誕節!

可是下年可能沒有越南春卷,因為他將會調職到美國佛羅里達州。這就是很多美軍在沖繩的寫照,每一次任期為兩至三年(有家庭的,三年)。任期完滿結束,未必可以再次在沖繩上任。所以有一些喜歡沖繩的美軍,乾脆退伍,在基地內找工作,或與本地人結婚留下。
