Dec 3rd: Blue Sky Christmas Concert/Party/Cookie exchange!


Blue Sky is having a very special early Christmas celebration this year. We are combining our annual Christmas Cookie exchange with a special informal concert.

Date: this Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008
Time: 2:30pm till 4:30pm.
Price 1000 yen per family
Place: Tsurumaki Kumin Shukaijo (same place as Halloween, but without the crowds!)

Everyone brings along a Tupperware of 15 or more of their favourite cookies for the exchange, and we all swap cookies! Some we will take home, and some we will have to eat right away!

The PTA choir from Matsugaoka Elementary school will perform the songs that won them a place in the Japan national PTA choral festival (Tokyo region). This will be followed by Christmas songs and carols sung by my friend Rebecca Sato, an opera singer and mother of two little boys.

This is not a formal sit-down concert. This is a small baby- and child-friendly event in a local community room, where your little ones are free to roam around, make noise and do whatever they need to do. (There is a small park and playground outside too.) Everyone performing has kids of their own, and some of them will be coming along too.

Optional: bring a small present for your own child (value under 1000 yen) to put under the tree, we will hand them out at the end. (Please wrap and label clearly)

Hope you will join us for some early Christmas fun!
