Lighting the Christmas Tree
Little N's class was asked to sing at the the City Hall for the lighting of the Christmas tree. Christmas over in Taiwan is a very commercial holiday. Little N's school is open on Christmas day, businesses and school are opened on Christmas day. They used to have a public holiday that was the same day as a Christmas but they removed it as a public holiday so Christmas isn't the same as it is in America where everyone spends time with family and celebrating the birth of Jesus.
