Sunday, December 11 was the International Holiday Party for the Suffolk County Cluster of Au Pair in America. Each au pair brought a dish from their country for the International Feast. There were dishes from Germany, Thailand, France, Poland, Slovakia, Bolivia, Croatia, Peru and the USA.
Each au pair brought a wrapped gift for the gift exchange. The gifts were placed under the tree as the au pairs arrived. After our wonderful feast, we gathered around the tree for the exchange, numbers drawn from a basket determined who, went 1, 2, 3 and so on. Everyone enjoyed their gifts.
Cindy Garruba, Suffolk Community Counselor, handed out her gifts to each au pair. A snow scraper, knit gloves, an ornament to remember their holiday in the USA and some candy kisses.
Pictures around the tree, holiday music and lively conversation was enjoyed by everyone. Happy Holidays!!
