Christmas in the CNMI
I'm spending Christmas in the tropics this year! I've had to adjust a bit to get into the spirit of Christmas considering its so warm out here. There are things that I miss back home around this season: Family, Friends, The cold weather, the shopping sprees, and starbucks pumpkin spice latte=) There are christmas lights up all over the island. I didn't start feeling the Christmas season until I came across these Christmas trees. Every ornament on the christmas tree is made out of recycled materials by kids from both private and public schools. They have entered a contest for the best decorated recycled tree!=) It was amazing! I was really surprised how great they turned out because i thought they were going to look trashy. But the kids did amazing things with old can's and plastics. My favorite ornament was the diet coke cans turned into a flower. Brilliant.=) This contest is an endless effort to beautify the CNMI. Just wanted to share these pics with you by Angelo (thanks angelo!). Hope you like em!
