Christmas With A Difference

Preparing our Christmas balloons


We had a unique feature in our Christmas celebration 2018. In order to bring home the true meaning of the feast, we asked our young people what values this day gives to the world. We then inscribed these onto balloons filled with helium and released them, designating a county for each one. Our children had never seen balloons rise before so they were totally astonished as they rose up high until completely out of sight, sending peace and love and goodwill to the world. It was a great experience and thanks to Santa Shoe Boxes and Rosebank Union Church, everyone got a personalised Christmas gift.
