So big news in tchala is that we got a new roof. My host dad, brother and our handyman neighbors slapped it on in a mere two days. We then had a supra in celebration which lasted 5 hours.
These pictures are from my wild new year's eve/day celebration. I think the one with my host dad, sister and grandmother (bebia) sums it up. Yes, they are holding sparklers. As you can see Georgians also decorate a tree but for the New Year instead of Christmas. Christmas here is the 7th of January as people are of the Orthodox faith. They also celebrate the "Old New Year" which is January 15th.
