A Very Merry Christmas Thai Style

Happy very be-lated Christmas! Below is a collection of photos from the Christmas activity I did this year at my school. Since Thailand is a Buddhist country they do not celebrate Christmas. All 6 of my classes learned a different Christmas carol to perform for the school following a lesson about different Christmas traditions. The morning also included a surprise visit from Santa, lots of costumes, and candy throws!
