Instead of the three kings - three scouts (01-10).

As every Year, in this saturday (07-01) Marijampoles vaiko teviskes namai had celebrated the celebration of Three Kings.

About a Three Kings' journey by gospel: "Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem. Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and we've came to worship him." (Mt 2, 1-2)

The annual celebration in Marijampoles vaiko teviskes namai had changed the traditions. Children were visited not by the Three Kings, but by the three scouts.

Scouts had attended families, had spread the message of Christ's birth by telling the history of three kings, and by discussing other topics that are revelant to the youth. They had marked the doors by the three kings symbols +K +M +B.

The journey was finished in the meetings' room, where the lightened candles had simulated a fire. Children performed plays, which was interesting, creative and original. The guests were impressed by the ingenuity of children. That's how the three scouts had completed the Christmas period in Marijampoles vaiko teviskes namai.
