It is Christmas in Ethiopia today. They follow the Julian calendar so their Christmas is always on January 7th. It is not like American Christmas...but then, what is? Christmas Eve is a day of fasting followed by church on Christmas Day and a meal of Doro Wat (spicy chicken) and injera. Christmas presents are usually a small gift of clothing. This is Bereket's second Christmas. I hope that his birth family has peace today with their decision---it must be very difficult for them to celebrate without him.
