In all European cultures, the end of the year is synonymous with festivities for children thanks to Saint Martin, Saint Nicholas, Santa Lucia, Santa Claus; it also a time that marks the awaiting of the Three Kings.
In many European countries there is a tale that says, that well-behaved children find a small present in their shoes on one winter morning in front of the fireplace.
This year, the Parents' Association is pleased to introduce children of pre-primary and primary 1 to a tradition coming from Italy: the "Befana", by offering to these children the DVD "La Freccia Azzurra", the "Blue Arrow".
With this DVD, we would like to make children sensitive from a very young age about the many traditions that are the foundation of our European culture and history.
This cartoon is not only interesting culturally but it is also and above all a work of great quality and the fruit of a European co-production.
We wish that the viewing of this film be a delight for you, your children and your loved ones.
We wish you safe and happy holidays.
From your Parents Association
