Merry Christmas!

By Sara:

Merry Christmas from Uganda!  Our friend Eric, from Mbale, came to spend the week with us.  May you, too, have a wonderful day celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus!

Even though there is no snow (it is hot and sunny), Christmas in Uganda is still Christmas.  We thought you might like to see a little bit of what we do for the holiday.  We've been celebrating Advent for the past four weeks.  O come, o come, Emmanuel.

And we even have a Christmas "tree" (it's a branch!)

We are eating gingerbread cookies:

The traditional Christmas sweet roll (made in the shape of a wreath by my mom, but too big to fit in my oven like that, hence the double C)

And the Christmas turkey (roasted in the clay oven at 500 degrees!):

May God give you peace and joy this Christmas!


  1. Merry Christmas Sara and Anthony!!
    Love Michele and Chris

  2. Your decorations are beautiful and so creative!
    May peace and joy be yours this Christmas and all through the new year!
    Love, Mom

  3. LOVE your Advent wreath and "tree"! So creative.
