The Grand America Hotel

 On Christmas Eve we drove around the neighborhood and looked at lights and Christmas decorations. There is a street that has a ton of lights. It was fun to drive down. There is another street where each yard has this huge book and you read a page from each yard about the story of Jesus' birth. That too was wonderful.

Next we went to The Grand America Hotel to go on a treasure hunt. They have these lavish window designs inside the hotel that you have to find hidden letters about Christmas. There are apothecary jars all over the hotel filled with candy and gum balls. Below is a Gingerbread house of some beautiful buildings in Moscow.

The hotel is gorgeous and the treasure hunt was a lot of fun. At the end we handed in our papers with the answers and received a yummy sugar cookie and a cute Christmas card.
