Christmas Eve in South Asia

Instead of settling in at some relative's house, we spent Christmas Eve where no person in the USA would dare to venture--the mall!

But it actually was not too crowded. Many of the malls, stores, and even Christian homes wait until the week of Christmas, or Christmas Eve even, to decorate.

And it is amazing that in a country with so few Christians, so many people are fascinated by, and even pose to take their pictures with, the baby Jesus in the manger.

After our mall adventure, we came back home and baked Santa some sugar cookies, settled in with a bowl of popcorn, and stayed up way past our bedtimes.

But it was worth it hearing the excitement in Rebekah's voice as she got Santa's Coke and cookies laid out and prayed for Santa's cookies as she went to sleep.
