It’s been a whirlwind of a time in China, but on this special day, we wanted to send some holiday greetings to our friends and family back home. We miss you all, and we can’t wait for when we’ll be reunited soon!
Christmas was a special day for us, even though we had a schedule that was different than any Christmas we’ve celebrated before. We started out the morning by recording our favorite Global memories, which we watched later in the day. Once we finished this video, we decided to sing a few Christmas carols, which we recorded and will send on soon! After the caroling, we were given the letters from our parents describing Christmas traditions at home. We were thinking of you all when we were reading these off, and we hope that you have a blessed Christmas this year. After this sentimental moment, Paul and Julie gave us a beautiful Christmas present–silver necklaces with “Global 2012″ and a picture of the globe on them. To continue in the spirit of gift-giving, we then gave our “Secret Santa” gifts, which we had been planning since Hong Kong. Overall, it was a great day filled with both missing our families but enjoying the day with our Global family!
We miss you all, and we can’t wait to see you when we return!
