Photo 2: Our team meal on Christmas Eve was red and green, per Lentz family tradition.
Photos 3: We went to the local fellowship for a Christmas Eve service, where there was a packed house, a message from Matthew, lots of songs we couldn't understand, and a performance we didn't stay for. Great experience.
Photos 4-5: Team gift exchange and opening a package from friends at home. Thanks, thanks!
Photos 6-7: Potluck and white elephant with the other foreign teachers in our building. Bonus points for finding the best gift of the evening, a pair of blue "paada" slippers, which are conveniently heated via a USB connection to your computer. Because nothing says "Merry Christmas" like giving your computer a virus from your footwear.
