22nd December 15
There is no time of the year which moves us more than Christmas. It doesn’t leave anyone unaffected. And there are no creatures on Earth who await Christmas with more enthusiasm than Children. We prepare conscientiously for Christmas. We decorate the halls and classrooms with ornaments which we bring from home and others which we make ourselves for the occasion, and the entire infant’s department has become filled with colours and Christmas songs which we sing on stage on the Festival day.
We have to rehearse and rehearse for this performance as on this day, everyone comes to see us and it has to go perfectly.
The three kings and Santa Claus also came, with a full entourage of page-boys and little helpers to bring us a foretaste of what they have prepared for us far in the East. Sometimes, when we see them arrive, we get so nervous that we begin to shed tears. But everyone knows us, even our names are well known and they calm us down with gifts and sweets … They are really magical!
