Even though there has never been a successful performance in history, teachers and parents will continue to insist their kids participate in holiday plays and performances. Really, that’s most of the fun. The adorable chaos.

And this older scene published by RCCMinternational in 2006 is a perfect example.

While The Twelve Days Of Christmas played on the speakers, each child holding a piece of paper with the corresponding number on it was supposed to raise it when their number was sung. 

Apparently, that’s too much to ask for kids in daycare

Simply adorable.
