This was our first Christmas Pageant as we hadn't had the opportunity to attend one in the past; we also thought our little one was not at the right age :).
The morning was cloudy, perfect conditions for photography :), so I took way too many!
When we were little (back in El Salvador) my Mum dreaded going out. We didn't have a car, so we had to travel by public transport. Third world conditions means anything can happen along the way, and unfortunately it is very unsafe for children. Nevertheless my Dad persisted in taking us out whenever he could.
Such a contrast here in our beautiful city! We had the best time and made a day of it. It felt as if children had inherited the earth! The streets were closed for them, police and organisers stopped to hi-five them and volunteers dressed up to make them smile.
So here is an avalanche of colour and good wishes!
May our children inherit a better, safer and happier Earth.
