German exchange student decorates the Christmas tree with Indiana host sisters

German with serious Christmas spirit

Victoria (or Vicky as she prefers) came to live with us for her exchange year in August. One of the reasons we chose her is because she said she “loves everything Christmas and decorating for Christmas.” We love Christmas too, so we knew she would be right at home with us! 

She had never tasted turkey so was excited to experience her first Thanksgiving meal! After watching all kinds of American Christmas movies, she is also excited about having a Christmas stocking, as this is not something they do in Germany! 

We put our Christmas tree up a little early this year because....well, it’s 2020 and the year has been crazy so why not!? Here are a few pics of Vicky helping to decorate our tree with her two American sisters, Ashlyn and McKenna!
