Christmas time is a period where everything seems to speed up and sometimes we feel lost in the middle of the thousand activities we find ourselves involved in. This year has not been different and that has been great also thanks to this Project.
At Ibaialde most of the students were just worrying about the school's Christmas Festival, an event which captures everybody’s interests for a number of weeks, and we forgot a little bit our partners in Poland. Shame to us!!
Just before Christmas we received a huge parcel from our friends in
The box contained all sorts of things: Two big jars with delicious cookies baked by two students in the project; a lovely Christmas card; a kind of stained glass representing the Nativity; dozens of their famous Calendar made with the photos of the winners in their Photo Contest; a blessed candle we immediately lighted in the classroom; and finally some other stuff for the teacher that was never revealed to the students but looked quite suspicious. But the best present arrived in a more modern way, it was a Video-Christmas card where they wished us all the best for the coming Holy time and they told us how they celebrate Christmas in
To try to make things even, after Christmas holidays, we sent them some letters where we told them about how we celebrate Christmas and traditions in our families, about the best presents we have given and the Fancy dresses we wore on New Year’s Eve.
Finally Ana and Amaia recorded a video where they tell everybody how they celebrate this fantastic period with their relatives and what it means to all of them.
And trying to get a final smile from them in
When we finished this topic, which is much more than a normal one, we thought everybody was a little happier and a better person.
