  • 1 stork in a baobab tree
  • 2 thatched huts
  • 3 woven baskets
  • 4 market traders
  • 5 bright khangas
  • 6 women pounding
  • 7 children playing
  • 8 wooden carvings
  • 9 grazing goats
  • 10 drummers drumming
  • 11 dancers dancing
  • 12 storytellers.
This is a Christmas steeped in the atmosphere of African village life, including descriptions of the objects and activities mentioned in the text.
