Night Before Christmas in Africa, The Gullah Night Before Christmas
This audio CD combines The Night Before Christmas in Africa with Gullah Night Before Christmas. In The Night Before Christmas in Africa, it’s hot and dry in the plains of northern South Africa during Christmastime. On Christmas Eve, Father Christmas arrives in a donkey cart pulled by six kudu and a black rhino to deliver toys, sweets, chickens, and more. Can he also bring the rain the area desperately needs? Gullah Night Before Christmas infuses Clement C. Moore’s classic poem with traditional Gullah folklore and characters. (Gullah is an English-derived Creole language spoken primarily by African-Americans along the South Carolina and Georgia coasts.) Traveling through a coastal South Carolina town, Buh Rabbit delivers his gifts to all of the good boys and girls. However, following Gullah tradition, Buh Fox has his mouth set on rabbit for dinner and his eyes set on the presents. The result is an action-filled Christmas Eve that children will never forget.
