Even though Cambodia does not officially celebrate Christmas, Aziza’s Place never misses an opportunity to have fun and celebrate together as a family. Decorating the Christmas tree was an exciting and creative joint effort which helped jump-start the festive mood throughout the residence.
As is the norm at Aziza's Place, the decorating effort was followed by eating where all the residents, staff and their families ate and laughed while being entertained by a familiar-looking Santa Claus!
For our newest staff member, Aimee, it was her first Christmas away from home in chilly England. Aimee was overheard saying, “spending Christmas with my new family at Aziza’s Place was very special. It felt like my family had grown and it was so much fun to see everyone let their hair down for the event....[and it was warm outside].”
It was particularly special as it was our younger residents’ very first Christmas celebration and with the all candy they consumed and the anticipation of Santa giving out presents, it was a Christmas they will never forget.
