On December 15th the Lithuanian school “Genys” celebrated Christmas. A festively decorated hall invited young and old to enjoy Christmas program. The director greeted all the children and their parents and encouraged all of us to continue learning Lithuanian and enjoy our Lithuanian traditions. Before we started our program, children sang the Jingle Bells song in Lithuanian and invited Santa Claus, with his big bag of presents, to watch the program.
The Christmas celebration began with our youngest Lithuanian community memebers “Kiskio klubas” song. Our school’s music teacher Vanesa Kaselionis helped children to prepare for a play “Katino Kaledos”. Children sang, danced and acted. The kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade children sang and danced to the song “Ejo pro Sali ziema”. Everyone did a wonderful job. Santa Claus was so amazed by everyones performance that opened his big bag and handed out presents to the children’s delight. There were many happy children. After the performance everyone gathered at the tables to enjoy delicious Lithuanian food.
We look forward to continuing celebrating Lithuanian holidays with the Lithuanian community in 2019.
