Christmas in Argentina!!
I have no idea how Papa Noel (Santa Claus) makes it through Argentina without getting blown out of the sky. I have never seen so many fireworks in my life, pretty dang cool. Christmas here totally puts 4th of July to shame in the states. On christmas eve, right at midnight, basically the whole country explodes with fireworks and it lasts for about an hour. It sounds like a war zone and the sky on all sides is just lit up with fireworks. Pretty cool, big differnce from the quite, peaceful Christmas in Utah. Supposedly New years eve is even crazier, I´m pretty excited to see it.
We spent Christmas eve with a family in out ward here which was super fun. The rest of Christmas was basically a normal day really. It wasn´t though at the same time, I don´t think I´ve ever been so happy in my life, I know Christ was pouring down his love on us and I definitly felt it. He is with us in this work, even on his birthday :)
