Happy Birthday, Kids!

Dear Children,

Have a sweet day full of Joy, Happiness and lots of Smiles! We dedicate a special poem to you:

Come meet the child/Who loves to be free,
Warmed by the sun/And kissed by the sea.

Come meet the child/Who watches each sky,
Searching for rainbows/Or objects that fly.

Come meet the child/Who hides from the dark,
Bees that can sting/Or dogs that will bark.

Come meet the child/Who’s eager for praise,
Told she is special/And loved many ways.

Come meet the child/Who’s so hard to see.
Come meet the child/That lives within me!

The Legend of the Christmas Stocking

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there„. There was a kindly nobleman whose wife had died of an illness leaving the nobleman and his three daughters in despair. After losing all his money in useless and bad inventions the family had to move into a peasant’s cottage, where the daughters did their own cooking, sewing and cleaning. When it came time for the daughters to marry, the father became even more depressed as his daughters could not marry without dowries, money and property given to the new husband’s family. One night after the daughters had washed out their clothing they hung their stockings over the fireplace to dry. That night Saint Nicholas, knowing the despair of the father, stopped by the nobleman’s house. Looking in the window Saint Nicholas saw that the family had gone to bed. He also noticed the daughters’ stockings. He secretly tossed three bags filled with gold coins down the chimney. The bags fell into the stockings that were hanging by the fire. His kindhearted gift made it possible for all three daughters to marry and have a happy life. From this was born the legend of Santa coming down the chimney and placing gifts in children’s Christmas Stockings.

May you find your Christmas stockings filled with delight, fun, health and happiness! 🙂

 

Proud to be a teacher!

What a great Halloween Party!  We had lots of witches, fairies, vampires, ghosts, pumpkins and other Halloween characters. It was a delightful evening with lots of laughter. Kids were so excited, they danced, sang, coloured, watched funny Halloween stories and  Snow White (the Host) gave them „little presents”.  Thank you for your participation!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s day at the United Kingdom

Mother’s Day is more popularly known as Mothering Sunday, the origins of the holiday date back to centuries when it was considered important for churchgoers to visit their home or „mother” church once a year. During Lent, the practice became quiet popular, and in a society where children were often sent off to work in other villages at a very young age, it quickly became a time for family reunions and celebrations that were fondly cherished. A special cake, might also be brought along to provide a festive touch. Later, Mothering Sunday became a day when children and domestic servants were allowed a day off to see their families. Celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent, Mothering Sunday remains a time to pay mothers their due rewards for all their love and encouragement with flowers, candies, cards, and other tokens of appreciation.
