This story of a child whose aunt grants him his one wish for Christmas, to see Father Christmas, plays with a familiar twist to bring the holiday spirit alive in Kenya, one of the last places I think of for Christmas traditions, and for that reason I liked it. It was the old person dresses up as Santa but can't make the appearance at the last minute and unbeknownst to the waiting audience another Santa shows up in his stead and no one realizes the rouse until well past. Very nicely told and interestingly arranged. I enjoyed this a great deal.
