‘Tis the season! We went to two more Christmas parties this week. Last night’s was at Errol’s office. it was good to meet some of Errol’s new colleagues, and I’m always up for a potluck. Children were invited, but ours were the only ones there. That isn’t my favorite kind of social situation.
Tonight’s party had plenty of children. The American library hosted a holiday gathering and even included Santa. We were invited because the three littles take dance there. Most of the families have children enrolled in English classes, and many aren’t native speakers. The kids loved when Santa read them How the Grinch Stole Christmas, but my favorite part was singing Christmas songs. It was funny to see so many people needing the printed lyrics to Jingle Bells and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
