Christmas Fairy Tale in the Osijek Streetcar

On Saturday, December 2, children from the SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci and their SOS mothers came to Osijek and took a ride on a Christmas-themed streetcar for the first time.

An unusual streetcar is riding through Osijek streets. It is decorated with the amazing 20.000 fairy lights and it boasts an even more unusual list of passengers: Elf, Snowflake and Santa Claus!
Christmas Fairy Tale in the Osijek Streetcar is a daily round-trip organized by the Osijek City Transport. The very first ride, which took place on December 3, was a gift to 15 SOS families. Our children took the ride in the company of their SOS mothers and Zoran Relić, the director of SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci.

The streetcar was lavishly decorated with colorful Christmas ornaments that captured our children’s attention. The children also enjoyed a Christmas play by a company of actors called “Magical Snowball”. They met the confused Snowflake, who fell from the clouds and could not comprehend how she ended up in a streetcar. Everyone joined forces to help her and they taught her to count. Keeping company with the Snowflake was Elf, who painted children’s faces and hands with magical glitter. Still, the highlight of the ride was the arrival of Santa Claus, who brought presents for the children. Our youngest children turned out to be the biggest fans of the streetcar ride and they wanted to remain in this Christmas tale for as long as possible. The festive atmosphere was compounded by the performance of an illusionist, who recruited children to help him perform his wonderful illusions.
We thank the Osijek City Transport for their invitation and for organizing this event.
