Ho-Ho-Ho Santa Knows
The gymnasium was filled with parents, grandparents and family members. My students sang, recited poems and performed a play. As you can see, my little miss had a part in the play.
This is one half of my class, the other half is on the other side of the stage. The three year olds were in the front row and you should have seen them rock the imaginary Baby Jesus like he was on a thrill ride as they sang at the top of their lungs, "Go Tell It on the Mountain. Go tell about the baaaaaaaaaabbbbyyyy."
Don't be misled by this innocent look. When the children were asked if they'd all been nice, they nodded. When asked if anyone had been naughty, Nicole saw Nicholas in the front row, pointed and shouted, "My brudder!" It was impromptu and she stole the show. Ten year old Nick looked stricken.
Nothing like a children's pageant to make my holiday.
My most memorable school program was when hubby played Santa and came prancing towards the children with the front of his coat tail tucked into his belt and his pants gaping open...thank goodness he was wearing jeans under them. I whispered in his ear, "Santa, XYZ" (examine your zipper) and he sang into the microphone, "A-B-C-D-E-F-G" and so I had to belly up against him and tug on his suit.
Thirty-seven years of children's programs, and I can't get enough!
Come back tomorrow, I will post my holiday PG rated poem.
