Every holiday season, the talented children of the Fundación MIR prepare a beautiful interpretation of the Christmas Story which they perform in Altos de Chavón as part of Casa de Campo’s holiday events. It is a wonderful occasion that reminds us all of the true meaning of Christmas.
On Friday the 23rd of December, a group of Casa de Campo villa owners, residents, and visitors enjoyed an interpretation of the magical Christmas Story (the “Nacimiento Viviente”) performed by the children of the Fundación MIR on Chavón’s main plaza in front of the St Stanislaus church. Continuing more than 2 weeks of continuous Christmas celebrations, including live musical performances, Santa’s visits, Christmas carolling, and a beautiful lighting ceremony, the children of the Fundación MIR brought the Christmas story of Jesus’ birth to life. Taking part in the lyrical show were children of all ages dressed in colorful, adorable costumes.
With the St. Stanislaus church as a majestic backdrop, the Christmas story was narrated by a group of students, while other boys and girls dressed as angels, farmers, the Three Kings, Joseph, Mary, and many more characters thrilled the audience with their impressive articulation and acting. The event was complimented by the Fundación MIR’s choir (which consisted of an older age group of students), who beautifully sang various holiday songs throughout the performance.
Good job, everyone! As always a wonderful interpretation and holiday event! The following images were taken by Alejandro Heredia during the Nativity skit performed by the Fundación MIR in Altos de Chavón on December 23rd:
