A Gringo Christmas Party

Saturday afternoon found us driving 2 hours the opposite direction to visit missionary friends. It’s chilly in Santa Rosa de Copan – about 65 in the afternoon! The temperature was in the 80’s when we left home! About 30 of us – many of whom didn’t know each other – brought food and drinks to the “white elephant” party. We had Christmas cookies, chips, guacamole, beans and salsa, cake, homemade bread, veggies, etc. Though we didn’t know anyone but our hosts, we felt right at home! There were North American Peace Corps workers, bilingual school teachers, Protestant missionaries, and a Catholic minister. We played games, sang “The 12 Days of Christmas”, and exchanged some great “white elephant” gifts! I got a whole box of rainy day activities and got rid of a tacky toilet seat cover set. Other gifts were far more useless. We did well!  We visited, made new friends and a LOT of noise! Some kids spent a lot of time at the food table. I think Joel ONLY ate cookies and cakes.

It was a rowdy, but well-organized party. Way to go, Trish!

For the next one, we have pictures!!
