Our Christmas Party

Yes, the Chinese do celebrate Christmas, kinda. It is not an official holiday, but most restaurants and shops will hang a Santa somewhere, especially in the McDonalds. It was really surreal sitting in a McDonalds listening to original Christmas carols sung by Chinese. Chinese Christmas carol remakes. As my sister would say, “Weird.” I was prepared not to have Christmas, but I was not prepared to have Christmas thrust upon me…

I taught a class on Christmas day and Boxing Day. Then I was finished until Febuary 15. VACATION! Lester and I are planning to travel around. First to Nanjing, a city in the East, then to a small village called Len Zhou 45 minutes out of An Yang. Add Hong Kong to the list and our world wind China tour is about to begin.
