Christmas In The Tropic

Hello, sweeties! How was your weekend? And if you're celebrating, how was your Christmas? Hope you had a blast. I went to office on Dec. 25 (sad, I know), but the good thing was I found photos on Christmas celebration in Indonesia. Below are just some of them.

This is how we do it: The church pastor reads a prayer in front of the offerings ornament on the altar during Christmas Eve at Tritunggal Mahakudus Paroki Church in Tuka Village, Badung on Saturday evening. Tritunggal Mahakudus Paroki Church is one of the oldest churches in Bali, having been built around 1935 when Christianity was first introduced to Bali, the most populous Hindu majority island in the world.
