highlights from Christmas in Kolkata

The day started off nice and calm, enjoying the new craft supplies the girls received as gifts. Aunt Mer helped make some new creations.
And then the neighborhood party got started...


There was food, and music and
Santa Claus in a horse-drawn carriage,

and goofy little kids,


and silly grown-up kids
and dancing!



They were the first out there, and we had to drag them away an hour and a half later.

And last but not least, another favorite Christmas moment in this great Joyful City:
It's Mother Teresa again! With a thirty-foot inflatable Santa, of course.

Such cool memories for you! My kids love the dancing video.

All those statues of Mother Theresa are just wonderful. For Christmas a friend gave us a print of the last meeting between Mother Theresa and Dorothy Day. It's a grainy black and white, definitely not a "great work of art", but it's just lovely. I love looking at these two great women, they inspire me to be more.

Man, how can Christmas in the boring States ever compare? Private dance floors? Giant Santas??
