С Рождеством! (Merry Christmas!)

Today I squished and squashed through the snow with students on the way to the last week before winter break! The class schedules for the week have adopted the very exciting mayhem timetable which includes no kids showing up to classes and many kids running around the halls and into the gym or auditorium to prepare for the impending Christmas spectaculars. For the past couple of weeks, I've been teaching my students about how Christmas is celebrated in America, how different cultures all over the world celebrate New Years, and we've played lots of Christmas games. Every time I show my Christmas powerpoint and I get to the final slide (see photo below), I get a little teary eyed reflecting on so many holiday memories with my family and friends.

This past weekend, a few Peace Corps friends came to our apartment to celebrate the holidays (and the continuation of our existence on Earth)! We sang good time favorites like The Christmas Song, Silent Night (in the dark), and a modern rendition of The 12 Days of Christmas, Ukrainian style (sort of).

Speaking of songs, today, my sixth form students agreed to sing (you) a song! This is from us in Ukraine to all my family and friends this holiday season! Merry Christmas!!!
