Dear friends and family
Hey ya'll,Christmas was fantastic. I was able to call my family, and have a Brazilian Christmas. What is a Brazilian Christmas like. Its like this, For Americans, the big day of Christmas is the 25th, Christmas day. Wake up, presents, and everything's a frantic excitement on the 25th. but here, its the 24th, and just the evening. they party all night, have Tons of Churrasco (Meat barbecue thing that's really good) and we eat a ton. it was at a members house, and the food and desserts were fantastic. Then the next day was really weird. Everything was silent. Not a sound was heard anywhere. Its like everyone was sleeping from partying all night. But we went to a members house, and had lunch there, which was pretty chill, and we ate a big lunch there again (left over Churrasco ´sh-u-ha-scu[) then the special day for missionaries, skyping our families. it was awesome. I freaking love my family, and calling them was especially fun, because I was also able to see Michaela through the laptop while they were skyping her. The rest of the week was pretty normal.
