Christmas in Neuchâtel

Hello everyone,

Sorry if this isn't the right forum, but I couldn't think where else to put it.

I remember this time last year when my OH was in Mexico and I was all alone, facing the prospect of Christmas alone in Switzerland (if the snow prevented me from flying back home). It was a very difficult time for me, and the idea of not being able to go home absolutely broke my heart (luckily I didn't have any problems!). Anyway, I had a couple of very kind offers of Christmas hospitality if the worst happened (both in Switzerland and if I got stuck in London on the other side) and it made the world of difference to me.

So, as there has been such an influx of expats to Neuchâtel recently, I thought I would propose something similar. My OH and I are staying here until the 27th, and I plan on cooking a Christmas dinner on the 25th. At the moment it's just the two of us, but if anyone is stuck here over Christmas and alone then please don't hesitate to PM me and you're more than welcome to come round. Nobody should spend Christmas alone (unless they want to, of course!), especially not in an unfamiliar country.

Anyway, I know maybe it seems a bit early, but the offer is there!

Re: Christmas in Neuchâtel

Just a little bump and to say can you let me know during the week if you want to come round please? I'm doing the shopping on Friday 23rd so that's a whole week... if you're grounded here because of snow or something then please tell me. NB: This is not an event - just if someone is stuck being alone on Christmas when they don't want to be. (If it's just the two of us I'm sure we'll manage somehow...)
