It’s all about the Christmas tree
On Saturday we had our day in the families. Everybody had the chance to do something with his or her exchange student and in that way show them something personal in the Christmas time. A lot of the German students decorated the Christmas tree together with their exchange student or went shopping in another city.
My father and I went together with my exchange student into the forest and picked up the Christmas trees we recently had chosen. We thought it would be a great experience for my exchange student to get to know a German forest. She really liked it. We had a car trailer for the Christmas trees. We always pick out the Christmas trees for the whole family so we had four. After we loaded the Christmas trees onto the car trailer my father gave my exchange student a little tour through the forest and explained her some stuff about trees and animals in the forest. She picked up some leaves and branches from trees. Then we got in the car and drove around to drop off the Christmas trees at my family members houses. In order to that my exchange student met my grandmother and she also got to see the farm of my uncle and my grandfather. At the farm I showed her the stables and she met our newest family member. Our new farm dog Nero.
In the evening the whole delegation met at the baptist church for a movie night. After that we all were very tired and went home. A golden finish for a great and exciting time.
