Merry Christmas! Shèng dàn kuài lè! 圣诞快乐!

This week has been full of Christmas cheer here at Omeida! Celebrating the festive season in beautiful Yangshuo is one that will be remembered fondly for many years to come.

The week started with Omeida’s annual Christmas show – it was an entertaining night with a number of performances from talented students and staff. The Chinese Academy students opened the evening with a Christmas Medley and by the end of the performance the whole crowd was singing and dancing. There was a range of entertaining performances which followed; from dancing and singing to poetry reading and a fashion parade. Santa visited later bearing treats and gifts for those who had been well-behaved throughout the year. Overall, the evening was a great success enjoyed by all!

On Christmas day, students brought their own Christmas traditions to China and organised a ‘pot-luck’ meal accompanied by mulled wine, good music and backyard cricket.

We would like to wish you a Merry Christmas where ever you are in the world! Shèng dàn kuài lè!  圣诞快乐!
