After the tree was trimmed, we turned out all of the house lights and sat by the fireplace to enjoy the ambiance. My grandchildren have never been so silent! They knew that they had created this masterpiece and took delight in their creation by making up their OWN Christmas song.
"Oh, Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Oh how much I love you!"
Next, we gathered hands and began to dance--not to Christmas songs-- but to Arabic music! Joining hands we did the Dabekh to singers such as Fares Karam, 3al 3een molyteem.
My little granddaughter, Nee Nee, did a belly dance for us!
Here is Shane (son # 2) and our little Simo (5) dancing, and our lovely Luna, Simo's mommy, dancing with my son.
