Celebration of Life
This is what Noodles school does for the children's birthday. You can't really tell but on the ground is an orange candle it represents the sun. The children put around it the four seasons and the 12 months of the year. Then the birthday child walks around the sun and for each year he makes someone reads a story about his life in that year beginning from birth. So I read about when he was just a baby all the way to all about Noodle in his 4th year. They sang a great song about enjoying their time with him and good wishes for the future. It was very touching and I only cried a little but I thought this was a great way to celebrate the kids' birthdays and still teach them the reality of a birthday.
