Dec. 25, 1943: Merry Christmas

Xmas day – got up around 9 A.M. – had a bite of breakfast, then went to Church where Lark had the service, then went up to Marigliano had a shave, talked to a bunch of boys around the streets, went in to an Italian house where I know the people and drank hot coffee and Vermouth for a Bon Natale. Returned to lunch then cracked hazel nuts for a couple of hours. Slept and am now just going to go in for Xmas dinner. The Xmas dinner was a huge success. Canned turkey and fried pork, vegetables, canned Plum Pudding. It really was grand. A lot of Officers from the Reinforcement Camp came in the evening. On the whole it was a very nice Xmas.
