The children of Romanians established in the UK were invited to participate in an event organized by the Embassy of Romania in London, in collaboration with ICR and MoneyGram. The entrance was free, and the children were expected with a wide cultural offer, meant to transport the little ones, but also the big ones, on the land of stories and the magic of Christmas. The 380 children present, together with their parents, enjoyed the show The Book of Stories, a musical with and for the children of Romanians in the United Kingdom. The musical was created and directed by the beloved actor Dragoș Moștenescu, with the participation of children from the AB Music Academy London music school. In this show, the story characters lost their identity when the Book of Stories got stolen. They find themselves forced to go on the road and recover the book at any cost. To succeed, the Voinic Präslea, Harap Alb and Greuceanu, Făt Frumos, Alba as Snow and Cinderella gather together. Dressed in Romanian folk costumes and their faces radiating with joy, children sang carols and recited Christmas poems in Romanian. Both the little ones and the big ones then had the opportunity to socialize, tasting our traditional cozonac. Santa gave a lot of gifts to the kids from MoneyGram. One Romanian, present at the event, declared at the departure: “When I was traveling with the children and all the other participants in the room, all the beautiful memories from home came to mind. Unique memories that we lived in Romania during the winter holidays. ” “It is so beautiful, that even though we are thousands of kilometers away from home, we can still feel the emotions that our carols convey and make us miss our longing for home.” If you miss the house, the carols. If you want to keep your child close to our Romanian Christmas traditions. Don’t miss the chance! On Saturday, December 21, MoneyGram is organizing a new similar event in Luton. The company has already prepared gifts for the children there. You’re welcome!
