Christmas has always been so special to me because I got to spend it with the people I love the most, my mom, dad, brother, Grandma as well as extended family, and my best friends. Being over 4,000 miles from these people on Christmas day I clearly would not be able to spend my cherished Christmas traditions with these people.
Even though I missed my family and friends very much, Christmas was not as sad and lonely as I would have originally thought. The reason for this is because of the people I did get to spend Christmas with. Myself along with several other victory scholars traveled throughout Europe, spending Christmas in Prague. And although it was a very different Christmas from what I ever experienced, my 23rd Christmas was one I will never forget, one spent with my new family of Victory Scholars.
