  • Description

    CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS VARY THE WORLD OVER. IN SOME COUNTRIES SANTA CLAUS ARRIVES EARLY IN DECEMBER: IN SOME HE DOESN'T SLITHER DOWN CHIMNEYS UNTIL JANUARY. CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS, TOO, TEND TO HAVE A NATIONAL SPARKLE AND DESIGN. BUT TO CHILDREN THE WORLD OVER, IT ALL HERALDS THE SAME, HAPPY TIME.

    FOR LONDON CHILDREN THERE ARE MANY DELIGHTS. THOSE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE EXTREMELY PATIENT PARENTS CAN SEE THE FAIRYLAND OF LIGHTS IN OXFORD AND REGENT STREETS, THE NORWEGIAN CHRISTMAS TREE IN TRAFALGAR SQUARE, OR WANDER FOR HOURS THROUGH TOY DEPARTMENTS IN THE BIG LONDON DEPARTMENT STORES.

    EACH YEAR, OF COURSE, TOYS FOLLOW FASHION TRENDS. JUST AS MINI-SKIRTS ARE IN VOGUE FOR TEENAGERS, SO ARE BATMAN REPLICAS AND EQUIPMENT FOR JUNIORS.

    THE CHILDREN OF NORTHERN ITALY HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL JANUARY 6TH, THE FEAST OF EPIPHANY, FOR THEIR PRESENTS, BUT IN ROME THE FESTIVE SEASON IS IN FULL SWING.

    TROUBADORS AND SANTA CLAUS ROAM THE ANCIENT STREETS AND SQUARES, REINDEER AND COLOURED LIGHTS BRIGHTEN THE MAIN SHOPPING CENTRE AND, IN THE CITY OF SAINT PETER'S, PRIESTS SET UP MODELS OF THE SCENE IN THE MANGER.
