I'm not kidding. It's been 80 all week and my hair has been curly every day. The theme song this December for all the missionaries is "White Christmas" because the chance of snow or even a slight chill in the air on Christmas day is just a dream. We've been listening to a lot of Christmas music and seeing a lot of lights, but it feels weird because it still feels like September. Louisiana is just a weird place!
We had specialized training on Thursday this week, which is basically just zone conference, except we were combined with the English zone (in New Orleans we have two zones who cover the exact same area, but one zone is Spanish and one is English). We talked a lot about the new Christmas video and how to share it. We also talked about music in lessons which was cool because music is my favorite! Singing in lessons is already something we do though, so it wasn't super new. After lunch, we had kind of a little Christmas party and it was so fun! President read "Cajun Night Before Christmas" which was hilarious because he was doing it in his best Cajun accent, and we were all dying laughing! I really love President Hansen! Also, we did a white elephant gift exchange, but you couldn't buy anything. You just had to bring something from your apartment. You would be amazed at the things people brought. Missionaries are crazy! :) It was so fun and it was just nice to see a ton of missionaries and spend time with President and Sister Hansen.
