Last Friday, we celebrated our last full week of classes at the UMIEP with a holiday Christmas party.
First, we drank hot cocoa, and decorated Christmas cookies with frosting and sprinkles.
Then, we decorated stockings in typical American fashion, to take home and hang above our fireplaces.
We listened to typical American Christmas music, and played Yankee Swap, an American gift exchange game. One person could choose any present to open. The next person could either choose a new present, or steal from someone else. It was a great afternoon full of laughs. Everyone went home with a gift at the end of the day.
