To carry out the idea, quite a little
preparation will be necessary. This
can be done cheaply. The work the
children should do tor themselves, such
as trimming the tree, and making their
To start at the end instead of the be
ginning, the final performance of the
pageant will be the distribution of
gifts from the tree. One way for the
teacher to handle the giving is to say
that no gift should cost over twenty
five cents (or whatever the children
can afford) and further, that each
child must hand in the names of the
ones to whom he or she is giving. In
this way the teacher can mnke sure no
child is left out. It will be well to se
that each child receives at least two
gilts, Bince one of the givers might
tail to bring in his presents.
A collection can be taken up to buy
tissue paper and a ball of red yarn.
Each child should be given a sheet of
this paper and two yards of the yarn
to tie up his packages. Then when the
gifts are brought in they will present
a uniform appearance. Red yarn is
fully as attractive as ribbon for tying
packages and much cheaper.
The pageant will start with the en
trance of two boys dressed as candles.
They will march sitffly to the center of
the stage and then separate. March
music will accompany them. If a piano
is not available, they can make a sim
ple statement, "We are the Christmas
Candles to light up Christmas Eve."
They will march stiffly to the center of
little girls dancing, representing snow
flakes. Holly boys and mistletoe girls
will follow them, marching first then
dancing, and finally forming a V shape,
awaiting the next entrance. This will
be the Tree, a small one on a table on
casters, pushed in by a group of ever
green fairies. Gifts will be piled about
its base, and it will be bare of orna
ment. All of the fairies will pass around
the tree and each put a little orna
ment on it. Then they will group
themselves about it, the evergreen
fairies seated in front with one or two
snowflakes, the taller holly and mistle
toe fairies back of it and either side.
The rest of the snowflakes will stand
in front of these latter.

After this a passageway should be
made for the teacher to come to the
front to distribute gifts from the tree.
If che wishes she can make a few
appropriate remarks about the gifts,
which have been made by the chil
dren, each an expression of their kind
feelings for each other, and so on.
As she reads the name on a package,
one of the nearest fairies will deliver
it to the owner, not returning to the
stage. This will continue until all the
fairies but two have left. These two

will deliver the remaining gifts. This
closes the program.
It may be that the teacher will pre

Now to go hack to the start.
The stae, the school platform, can
be as simple or as elaborate ns the
teacher wishes. The blackboards can
be covered with sheets re give a uni
form setting, and the teacher's desk
pushed to one aide. One curtain at
least will ba necessary, for the tree
must not appear until quite late on
.he program. This one curtain can be
a sheet or perhaps a dark couch cover
pipned to a wire strung across the
Two curtains, one either side, of
;lark muterial, would be best, of course,
giving two stage entrances for the dif
ferent groups. It will not be neces
sary to close tflem.
The candles, the two boys, should
have straight red crepe paper cos
tumes, with , their arms inside, and
their caps representing flames.
And that reminds us. The tree may
have cardies on it but DO NOT light
hem. With all the children dressed in
paper over their other clothes, the risk
is tar too great to take for the little
add-tional sparkle they might add to
the tree. If some one donates electric
bulbs, that is a different matter of
course. Even then the connections
must be carefully handled.
For snow flakes the group should be
little girls dressed in white. To their
dresses, crepe paper flakes can be
ewn, with wings of snow flakes, and
caps too, held erect by wires or paste
board. 'the holly boys should have dark
suits, or white blouses and dark pants,
with bright red sashes. Over this can
be hung large holly leaves of crepe.
The mistletoe girls can be dressed sim
ilarly with white dresses to which the
leaves are fastened. Large cotton balls
for berries should decorate their caps
If evergreens are available, make
the costumes for those fairies of their
branches. This group can be mixed,
boys and girls, or one or the other
Just as the teacher wishes. If no
hemlock or pine can be had, crepe
paper can take its place slashed with
fringes to represent needles.
The base of the tree and the table
should be covered with red crepe paper,
because many of the costumes will be
green and the red is needed for con
trast. Now as to music. The teacher's en
tire time will be heeded to send the
groups on the stage in order. So a
mother or some one interested must
pay the piano. Marches, dance music,
and the songs will be needed.
However, music is not absolutely
necessary. The snowflakes can stop
their fluttering to say, "we are the
Thiele, Prescription Druggist
. . . r
pnowflnkes. We have come to cover
nil the earth with a coat of white."
The holly and mistletoe group can
say, "We are the brothers of jolly
Christmas. We have come to help him
celebrate." The evergreen will say,
"We always bring the beautiful Christ
mas tiee and here it is now."
When the time comes to sing, the
teacher can start the songs w th a
pitch pipe. In this way the lr.ck of
music need not sj oil the pageant.
So Santa will not be missed and it Is
honed that all will agree that they had
a Merry Christmas.
