New Life Christmas Celebrations 2012

Merry Christmas, New LifeWhat do you think about Christmas? Is it a religious event? Is it about big celebrations with your family and friends?

What is Christmas Day like here in New Life?

After the whole day, all I can think of is this quote:

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” -Confucius

The way which we celebrated Christmas here was “simple yet beautiful.” Everyone here enjoyed their day.

Our Christmas carol group performed a beautiful song for us, which was rewritten for everyone here:

The Ten Days of Christmas at New Life

On the first day of Christmas my New Life gave to me, a bunch of people in recovery…
On the second day of Christmas my New Life gave to me, two mad dogs…
On the third day of Christmas my New Life gave to me, three bowls of porridge…
On the fourth day of Christmas my New Life gave to me, four coaches helping…
On the fifth day of Christmas my New Life gave to me, five are always late!!!
On the sixth day of Christmas my New Life gave to me, six A.M Yoga…
On the seventh day of Christmas my New Life gave to me, seven mindful mornings…
On the eight day of Christmas my New Life gave to me, eights piles of compost…
On the ninth day of Christmas my New Life gave to me, nine mosquitoes biting…
On the tenth day of Christmas my New Life gave to me, a million cups-a-missing!!!

Christmas, brunch, New LifeA lot of simple yet beautiful things also happened today!
Some people also did beautiful things for others or the community as Christmas gift. For example, a lot of the community members, like Pat, helped with the Christmas decorations. Merynel gave out massages to soften our muscles and hearts. There were wonderful decorations, and there was tasty food. There was plenty of singing and dancing! We especially have to thank two beautiful people for planning this amazing Christmas celebration: Karl and Angelika.

*Many thanks to E for this special guest post!
