Beautiful weather, a blue sky and just a xmas_1gentle breeze were the ideal conditions, which accompanied this years’ Christmas Bazaar of the French School and the SWC on Friday December 10, 2004. For the 4th time this annual market attracted many Sharmers.
The tables were filled with Christmas decorations, new fashion wear, beachwear, Bedouin handicrafts, Tupperware, potpourris, toys, the drawings of Sadea, candles, cookies, made by mothers and kids, and lots more. Of course various xmas_2attractive activities were offered for the children, even Santa Claus passed by.

You could stroll along the many different stands and look out for a nice Christmas present, get lots of culinary tidbits made by the “French” mothers and relax in the cozy Bedouin corner. The kids were romping in the air-castle or just having fun running around with their friends.xmas_3

For many it was a social event worth staying the whole day.The final highlight was the drawing of the tombola with lots of attractive prices to win, for the kids (i.e. banana boat rides, intro dives or horseback riding) and for the adults (hotel and restaurant vouchers, beauty treatments, etc.).

Everybody enjoyed this day and is looking forward to the 5th bazaar next year.
