Over 150 people joined in the annual Winter Stories tradition this year to enjoy storytelling of folktales from around the world, including Canada, Korea, Greece, Africa, and China. Cliff Missen did a marvelous job playing the Hausa/Fulani cow horn xylophone, and the children were enthralled by the buzzy sound it created. Cliff told us that the ends of the cow horns are cut off and covered with spider webs to create that unusual sound. ALL of the hot chocolate disappeared over the course of the evening and most of the candy and treats. We heard from one happy parent that his four-year-old daughter lent over in the middle of the storytelling and beamed, “I LOVE this time of year!” That’s what it is all about!
Thanks to all who made this another delightful evening of stories and songs.
