Olaf's Christmas Adventure

Looking for Christmas traditions was the theme of this year's Nativity play with Olaf, Elsa and Anna learning about the traditions of pulling Christmas crackers, hanging stockings, giving presents, decorating the Christmas tree and giving Christmas cards, but the best tradition off all was found behind the last door, the story of Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus!
