Parade Of Stars

Den Leader will read as boys wave stars and later the boys will help lead audience in song.

In closing tonight I'd like to remind you that we have learned about some other countries and their customs, St. Nicholas, and the Yule log. Now I'd like to tell you about similar customs of the Philippines and Holland. In Holland during Christmas season young people go through the street singing carols and carrying stars on log poles. This is called "Star Singing". In the Philippines the "Parade" of Christmas Star is the custom throughout the season. It is hung in windows above the nativity scene in all the homes. All sizes are carried on Christmas Eve in the "Parade of Stars" and villages compete for prizes.

Tonight please pick up your stars and join me in singing "Silent Night."
