Graduates of PFN

Celebrating Christmas is a new idea for most Nepalis.  The country of Nepal recognized Christmas as a government holiday for the first time in 2009.  This Christmas was the second time it has been officially celebrated as a day off from work and school.  Our Nepali friends told us how much they enjoyed singing Christmas carols in various neighborhoods throughout the city and sharing about the meaning of the holiday with the local people.  Christian churches held huge outdoor gatherings for worship on Christmas Day.
