We also had two Christmas workshops. My host mom really likes to be crafty, so me, Rumina and Sarah (my host sister) made little presents for our teachers and Tammy (my host mom) made some for her friends. We made little notes with chapsticks on it, chocolate trees and Christmas cookies. It was something I’ve never done before, but I liked it.
We also decorated the tree. Tammy’s aunt gave us an ornament with our names on it. I thought it was a really sweet thing to do. That way they’ll always remember me and Rumina!
After we decorated the tree we went outside to eat S’mores and listen to Christmas music. That has to be my favorite experience. I’d never eaten S’mores before and they were so delicious! That’s definitely something I’ll bring back home.
So that was some of the stuff I did this Christmas. It wasn’t really different from Norwegian celebration, except the snow. I have the best host family that makes sure of my happiness. I’m really enjoying myself here and I’ll be seeing you soon with more blogpost and videos.
Love, Fride “Friday”.
