Christmas party for tatiks and papiks

Kaja and me celebrated our Christmas eve with almost 20 eldery and many Red Cross volunteers from Armenia. It was a Christmas eve we will remember for the rest of our lifes.

The group that Kaja initiated managed to collect 17 000 AMD from local shops and firms. It is almost 300 NOK, and the money we spent on sandwiches, fruits, candy, drinks and Christmas decorations.

The guests were elderly with little money, and many of them are refugees from Asjerbajdsjan. They really appreciated the event, and thanked us many times with both nice words and many hugs.

During the day we sang songs (among them the Christmas carol "Glade jul"), and we had a quiz about Norway and Hayastan which was very popular. Some of the elderly tried to convince the volunteers to give them the answers.... The winner team got pulse warmers which the knitting group had made.
