Dec. 31, 2012

It was good to talk to you all this Christmas for a little while!
My week has been good, a little bit different because of the holidays and a lot of people are out of town or have guests at their houses, but it has been good.
People have made us some food for the holidays, and tonight we are going to 2 different houses to eat food with these member families. The holiday favorite foods seem to be tamales, which they don´t normally make or eat at any other time during the year, and a french toast type of thing covered in milk which is pretty good.
Other than that, they don´t really celebrate much. They all build their own little wooden guy, and then tonight I think that they all will burn these wooden people that they build, kind of a weird tradition, but I guess it will be cool, we´ll see. Also there have been a ton of fireworks going off everywhere. There aren´t any firework rules in Honduras, so every day people are lighting off fireworks at night, mostly just firecrackers, but they all go crazy with them during the holidays. So tonight will probably be pretty crazy with all the fireworks, burning stick people and drunk people.
That´s all I can think of to say right now, but things are going good.
