Christmas Eve

Last night i stayed up to welcome Christmas Eve in. I can't believe tomorrow's Christmas...can someone slow down time please?

Over the summer i taught my Vietnamese students about American holidays. I showed them how to make Valentines, which caused much blushing and a few teasingly said, "I love you, Teacher."

I showed them how to make turkeys by tracing their hands and coloring in the beak and feet. I told them we made turkey hands for Thanksgiving. They called them chickens.

And i told them about Christmas, about the trees and stockings and cookies. I even tried to explain snow, but only got them to understand that it was like crushed ice that fell from the skies.

Sometimes I miss that crazy Saturday morning class.
