My first Christmas in China – Secret Santa with my students!

“Santa Claus is coming to town..’

It’s Christmas day and I’m sitting here trying to send Xmas wishes to all my friends, but in between I’m looking at possible places to travel  next. I think there’s a serious case of Wanderlust building up! 

But in the Christmas mood, today I want to share with you what I did with my students for Christmas. 

I had a long debate about it, but in the end I decided that I will do Secret Santa with all my classes. We will talk maybe a bit about Christmas and watch some Christmas classics! 

When I planned that, I did not expected it will go so well! These were, to be honest, the best memories I have made in China so far. Everyone got involved and they all tried to make this week so very special for me. I was trying to make it special for them, but they made it special for me! 

We shared good moments, laughter and we took lots of pictures. It was wonderful. And I’m trying very hard to express it in words, for everyone to understand how much I love teaching here in Hangzhou and how proud I am of my students. 

I don’t know if I’m going to teach them in 2nd term, but they made this first few months here extra-special. 

Here are some of the pictures we took. In each class, I had one of the students put on a Santa hat and give the prezzies away to everyone.
