The Best Way to Spread Christmas Cheer... singing loud for all to hear.
Well, Halloween has passed and Honduras doesn't celebrate American Thanksgiving (obviously), so the next big holiday is Christmas. After hearing Cristian sing the praises of the new grocery store Maxi Dispensa ("It's soooo cheap! Cheaper than La Colonia. You have to go! It's sooooo cheap!) all day long on Saturday, we hopped in a taxi and spent a pretty penny on Christmas decorations. As in... $60.
Our purchases included:
-4 Christmas plates
-4 Christmas cups
-4 Christmas candle holders
-candles for an advent wreath
-4 tubes of ornaments
-a house ornament
-4 clay ornaments
-2 strings of lights
-3 rolls of ribbon
-4 Christmas signs to hang on our bedroom doors
-1 star
...and a partridge in a pear tree.
A (slightly expsinve considering our salary) shopping trip and a couple hours later and the teacher's house is officially ready for Christmas. Complete with non-stop Christmas music playing 24/7 and a fire blazing in the fireplace. You're welcome. And Merry Christmas.

Or should I say Feliz Navidad?
