Poems for Christmas: A Catalan tradition

On Christmas Day after lunch children stand on a chair and say a poem they have learnt at school to their families. If they are lucky and they know the poem by heart they get some money from their relatives. It's usually a touching moment.
This year 3rd and 4th graders have studied a Catalan poem and also an English poem: Snowball by Shel Silverstein.
