Twinkling lights, the sweet smell of hot cocoa, and the heat from a yule log are typical American traditions during Christmas time. International students, however, often have different holiday traditions. Sophie Gonzalez and Silvia Rojas share their cultures’ traditions and the difficulties of being an international student during a time of political turmoil.
