Bird on a Bare Branch

Attempting to fling a frail song in my little corner of the world

On the Second Day of Christmas… December 15, 2010

Filed under: Pictures — Jen @ 5:08 am

I arrived in Mozambique just a few weeks before Christmas 2007.  I was told that because Mozambique had been Communist, Christmas was not celebrated.  Instead it was known as Family Day.  Even churches did more for New Year’s Eve than for Christmas.  However, that first Christmas, there were small signs of the season.  Shops did not sell Christmas decorations, but a handful of street vendors walked around with tinsel and small plastic Christmas trees.
