Babbo Natale Goes to School



This morning I facilitated a visit from Babbo Natale (the Italian Santa Claus) to the younger students at school. All children in nursery through 1st grade presented Babbo Natale with a gift that will be given to children living with HIV here in Rome. Babbo Natale left with large bags of presents that will brighten the faces of many children this Christmas.

Hooray for you! I mean ... Santa. I mean ... Babbo.

Or whoever came up with this idea.

Larry, hope you don't mind that I linked to this story - when you told me about it last night I dinner it didn't quite register. What a wonderful way to teach children about so many things. As Eric says whoever came up with the idea deserves a special Christmas gift. But then seeing this was probably gift enough.

And you are a fantastic Babbo Natale!

How dear for the little ones to give the gifts to Babbo for other little ones- utterly precious. And what a lovely gift you've given them to remember the truest gifts of kindness and generosity.

What a wonderful thing, for kids so young to involved -- even bigger lesson than the school work!

I come to you via Willym, and I am SO deeply inspired by this. It makes me want to try and organize something similar at my youngest daughter's school. Thanks for the beautiful idea, and you do make a charming Babbo, Santa, adorable guy in red.
