Ah Why Not, Here’s A Classroom Of Chinese Preschoolers Singing “We Wish You A Merry Christmas”

I work as preschool rock star in Qingdao. Our annual New Year’s production is coming up and it’s a big deal. Preschool competition is tight and parents shop around. As the only foreign teacher at our branch (200+ kids ages 2 to 6), I have to find something English for them to do in the New Year’s show. That means making them stop picking their noses long enough to appear to sing an English song. So we’ve practiced We Wish You a Merry Christmas and two other songs every morning, five days a week, since the beginning of December.

The Chinese teachers took these videos (from three different classes) around mid-December. For a more realistic effect, turn your volume all the way up and listen to them on repeat. For three hours. Every morning. For a month. And have a Merry Christmas!
