Oh Christmas.

Well, Christmas has come and gone. It was quite an experience here in China. Michael and I were invited to Christmas parties that our students were throwing. We thought it was all one big party but turns out we were invited to 8 parties, all at 6PM Thursday and we had already promised to attend them all. Thankfully, they were all on the same floor of the same building - so we got to make an appearance at all of them. Many of my sweet students gave me gifts. I must say that my favorite was a set (his&hers) of cell phone holders. They are plush heads (one male one female) with a slit in the top of the head for your cell phone. Genius. We use them every night.

Also, our school administration invited us to a "party." When we arrived we found that it was a large student production in an auditorium. I was a little peeved at having to sit and wait for 2 hours for the thing to start but found it to be well worth it. I can only compare it to a bad high school talent show. I have included a video of my favorite act below.

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year!!
