So, we didn’t do anything cool today. Well, only if you don’t count going to a World War II Christmas at Latta Plantation. 🙂
It was kind of rainy, so it was muddy, and when a person normally thinks of war they think of men fighting on a muddy battlefield, so it was more realistic.
First, we saw Santa Claus and made a tiny wreath. Then, we went to the plantation kitchen and saw Santa again, but this time he gave us candy canes! After that, we went to a small cabin and visited a prisoner of war. He wasn’t really a prisoner, but he did tell us a true story about a man who was a prisoner of war. Then, we saw some soldiers who told us a little bit about the life of a soldier on Christmas. Later, Emily and I sent a hand written Christmas card to a soldier who is fighting in the war now. We had a great time, but I think that we can all agree on the best part of the trip. It must have been the pigs. I mean, who doesn’t like pigs? They’re so cute, and they look at you like you are made of corn! I love Latta Plantation!
