False. I don't know if you would call it a Christmas party. In August of 1993 we flew to Manaus and from there to the jungle city of Cruzedo dol Sul, Brazil.
We went to visit our son, a missionary, his wife and 5 children. We carried many many gift with us. Children's gifts never made it through customs.
Our grandchildren were 3, 5, 9, 11 and 13. That was the most exciting 'Christmas' I ever had.
