Christmas Eve In Kitale, Kenya

Christmas in Kenya is very different than in the States. Although people celebrate by spending time with their family, there is a lot less materialism. Below is how I spent Christmas Eve with my friends. We went to a kesha. Kesha is the local name for an overnight prayer service. Usually a church comes together once a week for a whole night (sun set to sun rise) for prayer. Not something quite common in the States! This was my first time ever attending one. I didn’t stay for the whole night (I had to get up early and start cooking Christmas dinner), but I really enjoyed it.
