St. Nicholas is coming to town. ( 5 )

 

A childrens room. There are two beds and a small bed-table between

them. Its bedtime. Two children, a boy and a girl are going to bed,

Mother puts them in their beds, kissing them and saying Good Night.

 

Mother: Good Night, my dear! Have sweet dreams! (She kisses her

daughter). Sleep well, Roman, and dont be naughty. Maybe St. Nicholas

will bring you some gifts tonight. (She leaves the room).

 

Having laid for some seconds, Roman opens his eyes raises his head and

peeps under his pillow. Theres nothing there. Roman looks sad. He gets

up and tip-toes to his sisters bed. But as soon as he touches her

pillow, Mary awakes.

 

Mary: Oh! What are you doing here, Roman!?

 

Roman: I just wanted to know whether youve got some gifts under your

pillow. Because I have none.

 

Mary: And you wont.

 

Roman:Why?

 

Mary: Heard what Mother said? Naughty boys get nothing from St.

Nicholas.

 

Roman:Am I naughty?

 

Mary: Of course you are!

 

Roman:Certainly not! I always eat my porridge. And I walk with our dog.

 

Mary: And do you help the mother?

 

Roman:Well I have no time

 

Mary: See? You wont get anything today.

 

Roman:You think you will?

 

Mary: Sure.

 

Roman:You always do. Is that your new doll, by the way?(He takes Marys

doll)

 

Mary: Its my doll! Dont touch it!

 

Roman:I also want to play with your doll!

 

Mary: But its my doll! Play with your cars!

 

(The girl pulls the doll with all her might and starts to cry. At that

moment some angels enter the room. The childre stop crying and fighting

and watch the angels in surprise).

 

Angel 1: Hush, children! Dont be naughty!

 

Angel 2:Youd better not cry.

 

Children:Why? Whays the matter?

 

Angel 3:St. Nicholas is coming to town.

 

Mary: St. Nicholas?

 

Roman:St. Nicholas?

 

Angel 1:Do you know who St. Nicholas is?

 

Children:Yes, we think so.

 

Angel 2:Do you know much about him?

 

Mary: I know that St. Nicholas was born in Greece in the end of the

third century.

 

Angel 3:Oh, nice girl. You are so clever. You must also know that after

the early death of his parents, he dedicated his life to Christ and

entered a seminary.

 

Angel 1: At an early age, St. Nicholas was a Bishop in Asia Minor. His

generousity towards the poor was legendary, and he was very fond of

children. So, he became the patron Saint of children.

 

Angel 2:On the 19-th of December he brought children some gifts, like

fruit, nuts, candies wood and clay toys.

 

Children:And what about us? Will we get any gifts today?

 

Angel 3:It depends on you. If you are kind to your friends and parents,

if you study well, then you may get some gifts. St. Nicholas sees you

when you are sleeping and ehen you are awake. He knows if you were good

or bad. And he will come to you tonight.

 

(Somebody is knocking at the door.)

 

Children:Oh! Maybe its him! St.Nicholas, come in!

 

(But a small devil suddenly appears and the children look very

frightened and surprised).

 

Devil:Oh! What a cold! Im frozen to the bones, and I see nothing here.
