While I'm very sad to miss out on the Rall family's celebrations in Zurich, Switzerland this year...
I'm also looking forward to enjoying the Holidays in Thailand.
This week I introduced my students to "Elf" and played many rounds of Christmas BINGO where they flipped out over the candy canes they took home as prizes - Thanks, Em! Our school hosted a lovely Christmas lunch this afternoon with Thai food and pizza, it was very cute and much appreciated that they put on the feast for us even though the staff is mainly Buddhist.

Tonight Nell and I will be celebrating by watching Christmas movies, blasting our air conditioning so that we can wear sweatpants and sweatshirts and drink hot chocolate, skyping with some lucky folks back home, and enjoying some imported cheese and prosecco! Tomorrow morning I'll head into Bangkok to enjoy a Christmas service at an international church before I join 6 of my friends in a hotel penthouse suite that features an oven (nonexistent features in 98% of Thailand homes)...I'm so excited to do a little baking, I'm thinking some of these and these.
Merry Christmas to all! : )
