CHRISTMAS CELEBRATIONS

Valerie, an exchange teacher, from Sedlescombe Primary School in Englandshows the children some pictures of her class at Sedlescombe school making "Christingles" and shows the New Creation children how to celebrate this festival.

The children learn the chorus to the "Christingles" song and enjoy the festival celebrations!




The Christingle begins with an orange
Like the world which the Lord God made.
For creation is full of his glory;
All around we see his love displayed.

CHORUS:-
Sing Christingle! Sing Christingle!
Sing Christingle from the darkness to the light.
Sing Christingle! Sing Christingle!
Sing Christingle to the light

Every year we give thanks for the seasons
And the fruits of the earth to share.
The Christingle is here to remind us
That God loves his people everywhere.

CHORUS:-
Sing Christingle! Sing Christingle!
Sing Christingle from the darkness to the light.
Sing Christingle! Sing Christingle!
Sing Christingle to the light

To complete the Christingle a candle,
Telling us of the world's true light.
For the darkness shall not overcome it,
Jesus shines on in the darkest night.

CHORUS:-
Sing Christingle! Sing Christingle!
Sing Christingle from the darkness to the light.
Sing Christingle! Sing Christingle!
Sing Christingle to the light


FOOD



Drawing pictures of "dinner plates", the children created a typical, favourite meal. These included South Indian favourites, delicious idlies (steamed rice cakes), dosai (pancakes again made from rice, but lightly fried), rice and sambar (a lentil soup) as well as pizza!
