Told in the rich, deep voice of Sibusiso Victor Masondo, The Night Before Christmas in Africa captures the essence of Africa. The tale is brought to life with the sound of thunder as lightning flashes across the sky and Father Christmas calls out, "Iba nokisimusi omuhle." Following the story are traditional African songs performed by the Sparrow Schools Choir.
In Gullah Night Before Christmas, Clement C. Moore's classic poem is infused with the spirit of traditional Gullah folklore and characters. Traveling through a coastal South Carolina town, Buh Rabbit delivers his presents to all 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. The narrative also includes a brief history of Gullah, an English-derived Creole language spoken primarily by African Americans along the South Carolina and Georgia coasts.
