From NSLI-Y RD Sophia Kor - 

Happy Holidays from the NSLI-Y Taiwan group! From the beginning of December, the holiday spirit was in the air. Christmas music was playing at every  coffee shop, wreaths and Christmas trees were displayed at many stores and  restaurants, and the feeling of benevolence filled everybody’s hearts! And while the  NSLI-Y students were rigorously studying for their classes, they could not wait until  December 22, the day of their Christmas party with their host families.

The students came early to help prepare Christmas decoration and make  cookies at the restaurant Jacaranda, famous for their Chicago deep-dish pizza. When the families came, the students guided them to sign their names on their DIY  Christmas tree and to take pictures with Santa (Brayton!) next to the Christmas tree. 

To top it off, this young Santa even had a long white beard and a big belly.  The students then interrupted dinner to give a surprise performance for   their families. They opened their act by singing Jingle Bells in Mandarin and We 

Wish You a Merry Christmas. Next, they performed a skit in Mandarin, which  explained how many American families traditionally like to go to the mall to take  pictures with Santa. The performance ended with a beautiful rendition of Santa  Baby sung by Deja and Baek, with Brayton and Alex as backup dancers.

The night ended with cookie decorating and a game of White Elephant,  where every family got to take home a random present. With their bellies filled, the  families left happily. Overall, the night was cozy and allowed the students to  positively experience Christmas abroad.
