CHRISTMAS CUSTOM

IT IS TRADITIONAL IN THE SUZIO FAMILY, THAT DURING ADVENT, ALL GOOD
DEEDS ARE REWARDED WITH A LITTLE STAR DRAWN ON A SHEET OF PAPER
HANGING ON A DOOR. EACH CHILD TRIES TO GET AS MANY OF THESE STARS,
AND THUS BE AS GOOD AS THEY POSSIBLY CAN BECAUSE ON CHRISTMAS EVE
LITTLE SCROLLS, TIED WITH RIBBONS, CONTAINING ALL THE STARS THEY
MERITED, ARE CARRIED IN A PROCESSION TO THE CRIB UNDER THE CHRISTMAS
TREE. EACH CHILD WANTS TO HAVE THE BEST GIFT POSSIBLE, SO THEY WORK
AS HARD AS THEY CAN.
