Trimming the tree party!
Saturday, December 12, 2014, and starting the count down of the 12 days of Christmas, the Santa’s Elves at the Yacht Club of Monaco transformed a room into a Christmas wonderland with dozens of little pine trees like in a forest, polo bears, and a stations with panettone (typical Italian fruitcake) tasting, cotton candy, all kind of sweets and more. There was even a virtual burning fireplace on a giant screen that added to the holiday atmosphere, and a music band provided the traditional Christmas music.
Children and their parents flocked in the afternoon to decorate the trees, that they would take home with them as a souvenir of a delightful afternoon. They all participated in different ateliers garnishing cookies, making their own holiday ornaments, and enjoying delicious treats.
Santa Claus is coming…
But the highlight of this holiday event was the highly anticipated arrival of Santa Claus, who I have to say, resembled a lot to Bernard d’Alessandri the Director and soul of the Yacht Club. The little ones lined up to be on Santa’s lap to tell him what they wanted for Christmas, but he will certainly keep the secret!
Looking at the holidays through the eyes of children bring the bliss and magic of the season, and it is in their hearts that we find its true meaning. They remind us of that special feeling you got on Christmas morning and still believed.
Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.” Author unknown, attributed to a 7-year-old boy named Bobby
