11 p.m. Here is the Alexeevsky shopping mall. Three madri were doing the latest preparations for a festival for kids. Little boys and girls and their parents knew of this only that somewhere in the Alexeevsky shopping mall at 11 p.m. there would be celebration of Tu B’Shevat…
Comfortable rooms of the kids center of “Vyruchalochka” (“Rescuer”) are prepared for conducting events for the least kids. However boys and girl who are older liked this place too. Mikhail Shteiman, Zhanna Maslova, Roman Sverdlov and Vladimir Andriyanov who had joined them prepared for the kids a very interesting program. Little boys and girls were learning of traditions of Tu B’Shevat by means of merry and fascinating games. At first they were seeking for a tree which would tell them a nice parable of the history of this holiday. Then the boys and the girls started to color postcards which they wanted to give their moms and dads. The merriest part of the festival was a photo session with colorful images of fruit.
After the kids had learned the much new of the holiday, played and amused themselves in abundance they were offered to taste seven sorts of fruit which it is usual to eat for Tu B’Shevat.
Being happy and satisfied kids and their parents went home. They will keep in mind the nice atmosphere of this festival for a long time.
