(AKA Christmas Eve in Suzhou)
Yesterday I heard from my mom that I forgot to write a blog. Oops. Sorry. There wasn't much to write about anyways. I had my favorite steamed buns for dinner. Work was work. That's all.
Now, today. Christmas Eve party here at work. It was fun! It only lasted an hour, but they had entertainment and everything. Some sorta famous Chinese singer who was extremely tacky and a dance group of three girls that would have lost a high school dance competition. I got video of it. Oh, and during the guy singing, a girl came and was yelling in my ear, asking if I'd help with passing out candy dressed as Santa—wait, what?? Yep. That's what she asked me. So when the time came, she got me and brought me into the back room to dress up as Santa. Beard and everything. Then I was corralled to the front of the auditorium and handed stockings filled with Rocher candy—and told to throw them into the crowd. Everyone loved me for throwing candy! But poor things—to all of these people, candy and shopping is what Christmas is about. They don't know the real Christmas.
I'm attaching pictures. Simon at dinner last night, me dressed as Santa, maybe some others.
Hope everyone enjoys Christmas. With your families. I'll be alone. No biggie.
