December in a Nutshell
Im the equivellent of a Senior here. Saint Nicholas came to my class and gave everybody animal crackers not in the shape of animals. But I'm not complaining. St Nick and Father Christmas are different people here. The first came the 13th-ish of December and gave me a new journal and a bunch of chocolate. The second never actually came. HUGE disappointment! We stayed up until midnight on christmas eve and opened all the presents we bought for each other... i thought come morning therd be a lil something more from santa considering theres a 9 year old in the house and we were still lying to him. but no. we slep in christmas morning then went to the grandparents house where we ate alllllll day. and since half the family are teachers... for our entertainment we played Jepordy in french. Needless to say I was more than useless. I did know the capitol of Cuba. Luckily my team mate was my host mom so we came in second out of 4 teams. For new years my host sisters went out but i stayed at the house. We dressed up and watched the eiffel tower light up on tv then listened to the king give the same speech 3 times, once in french, once in dutch, and once in german (the three official languages of Belgium). i called my parents and was like 'happy new year' and they were like 'its only 6' a lil bit twilighty zoneish. doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo.
