I had awesome Christmas in Latvia. I decided to stay for Christmas in Latvia. Thank you to Volunteers from Rūjiena, which hosted us in their place. 23th of December we spend Christmas with seniors in seniors centre in Rūjiena. We made Italian tiramisu, had a cup of tea and some other cakes. We were listening and singing Christmas songs. It was lovely time to try to make bit happy some seniors. Next day more volunteers came and we prepared a big Christmas dinner and enjoyed Christmas together with a lot of fun and happiness.
The Christmas school holiday at Erfolg was with the spirit of fairytales. Christmas time is beautiful time with the smell of the Christmas tree and Christmas cookies. We made also gingerbread cookies during the camp. We learned together the German Christmas song and sang the other Christmas songs what we know. We visited the Christmas market at the Main Square and the culture centre where we made arts and crafts – the lollipop reindeer and the Christmas cards.
The topic of the holiday’s school was the fairytales, in each day we concentrated to fairytales from a different country. We started with Latvian and continued with German and Russian. The kids had individual paper works and quiz together. They were collecting the sticker like the points for the competitions.
We did the theatre about the enormous turnip story and made the video. We made also video about how the superhero saves the Christmas. All the kids were amazing actors and we wished the happy New Year you to everyone.
I wish you Happy New Year!
