Christmas party Los Pipitos by La Mariposa Nicaragua

Christmas party for Los Pipitos

Christmas for me is about sharing and giving; giving thanks to family, to friends for ‘being there’. Spending time with the people I love. This year my Christmas was really special. I had to chance to celebrate it with La Mariposa Spanish school en Los Pipitos; the disabled kids here in Nicaragua. It was a Christmas the way I think Christmas should be.

In the last few years I had a little bit of a problem with Christmas. It became to commercial for me. Too much about spending lots and lots of money on gifts and eating more then you could eat. For a few years I fasted on Boxing day. It probably didn’t make any sense at all, but for me it felt a little bit as a counterbalance to all the overeating people do at Christmastime. Last year was a pretty good Christmas: having a nice family dinner at my sisters place on the 25th of December and celebrating Christmas with a ‘left-overs’ party at my yoga school on Boxing day; singing mantras with Erwin Coenen for desert.

This year has been one of my best Christmases so far. La Mariposa organised a Christmas party for Los Pipitos, here in La Concha in Nicaragua. Los Pipitos are the disabled kids. Where I come from – The Netherlands – things are pretty good organised for disabled kids. In Nicaragua it’s a totally different story. Los Pipitos tries to help out, but that organisation depends on gifts to help the parents of disabled kids, giving their kids a joyful life. La Mariposa helps Los Pipitos wherever it can and it’s needed.

And this year they threw a Christmas party for the kids and their parents, with live music, dance performances – by kids, including some of the Los Pipitos kids – nice foods, pinatas and of course Christmas gifts. I was a silent witness, taking photo’s for the parents, watched the big smiles on the kids faces and just felt: this is what Christmas is about.
