Traditionally in the Dominican Republic, children do not receive gifts on the 25th of December, but rather on January 6 – Three Kings Day. With this tradition is mind, we had parties today for the 53 regular attenders in our Sunday programs. The first party was for the preschoolers and the second for our children’s department. For crowd control purposes, this was a by-invitation-only event.
A special thanks to Renew Community Church in Pennsylvania for sending a shoe box full of goodies for each of our party participants today! And thanks to Burger King for donating crowns.
On Monday we will have a party for all children who would like to attend. (The Dominican government declared that Three Kings Day will be officially celebrated on Monday the 9th this year.) It’s hard to estimate how many children will come, so if you’re free, come on down and lend a hand!
At the risk of boring you all with adorable pictures, here are a few more . . .
(By the way, I have tried for a very long time to make the pictures more centered, margins standardized, etc. However, I just can’t seem to make it work right. But then, when you have pictures this cute, it probably doesn’t really matter, right? 🙂
