Embassy Christmas Tree for children in Abu Dhabi

Welcome New Year 2014!

This year Embassy Christmas Tree saw more than 500 guests coming from all the United Arab Emirates. The new year event was organized for russian children and children from mixed families by the Embassy of the Russian Federation in the UAE and the Community for Russian Women “Rossiyanka” on December 29, 2013 at Raha Beach Hotel, Abu Dhabi.The spouse of the Ambassador of the Russian Federation Efremova Tataina Borisovna opened the event by addressing the guests with welcoming speech.

The Christmas Tree entertainment showed amazing theatrical performance for children by “Arlekin” theatre group.  The charm and the skills of actors made them to plunge into a mysterious and fascinating world of fairy tales with magical transformations and children’s favourite characters.  Among other entertainments there were round dances, lovely new year party games and contests, meeting with Santa Claus, Snow Maiden,  Baba Yaga and Grey Wolf,  and of course, gifts for children!

After the show was over, there was a sweet surprise for little guests – new year’s cookies and desert! And, according to the tradition, every child could recite a poem or sing a song for Santa Claus!

 New year’s celebration is an exciting time for everyone – so is for our children. We, as organizers, very much hope that we managed to create a special day for our children, the day that they will remember forever!

Happy New Year dear children!
