Peter did a dance number with Clara in his class' swinging routine. Anna's class dressed in their jammies and sang "When you wish upon a star". Maggie's class did a song they wrote to the tune of Thriller ('cause this is Christmas... Christmas night!). The older kids did their acts after intermission. Some of the class' wrote and played their own music, drums, bass, guitar, flute, saxophone – the kids were amazing. By the time the 10th graders rocked out "All I Want for Christmas is You", we were all feeling the love. Wow, we had a great time! I even got to MC a little.
At the end, Santa came in his tradional reindeer fur coat with Nordic tool belt. He gave all the kids each a paper bag containing traditional treats: an orange and some chocolates.
Afterwards we bought a tree which the 9th graders had cut that morning. We come home tired, happy, and full of music. The tree will stay on top of our car until tomorrow.
