We really got our holiday fix on this weekend. Asian Grandma and Grandpa came over and cooked a crab fest on Sunday, then we all piled in the Prius to go to the Festival of Lights at Vasona Park.
Mistake 1: Going in my car. Cramped with a car seat, pregnant lady, and Asian Grandma riding center. Oops.
Mistake 2: Going at peak time. It took 1.5 hours to see about 20 minutes of lights.
But it was well worth it when this holiday song came on in the car.
The lyrics go "Mamacita, donde esta Santa Claus? Donde esta Santa Claus?"
My dad goes: "I bet Mamacita means Merry Christmas, huh?"
And I would've rolled on the floor laughing, except I'm whale sized and we don't roll so well out of water.
Then my mom says in a low voice in Vietnamese: "It means house, doesn't it?"
Immigrant parents are the best.
Everyone, I'd just like to wish you Mamacita and a Happy New Year.
