    Snowmen are in front of the house.


    First snowman is with broom, second snowman is with lantern.


    FIRST SNOWMAN: Are you sure it’s today?

    SECOND SNOWMAN: Yes, I am. I told you that a hundred times.

    FIRST SNOWMAN: I remember. But yesterday you said the same.

    SECOND SNOWMAN: One mistake could happen to everyone. Today is that night, no doubt.

    FIRST SNOWMAN: How do you know?

    SECOND SNOWMAN: Children switched on my lantern.

    FIRST SNOWMAN: What for?

    SECOND SNOWMAN: To light for Father Christmas where is our house.

    FIRST SNOWMAN: Is that light enough for not miss us?

    SECOND SNOWMAN: Children checked, they knew better. It’s not their first Christmas. They had experience, not like you.

    FIRST SNOWMAN: It’s your first Christmas also.

    SECOND SNOWMAN: I am not sure. Maybe not first. Just I can’t remember previous. I had snow in my head, I can’t be certain about anything.

    FIRST SNOWMAN: Tonight is Christmas, you said.

    SECOND SNOWMAN: It’s different. Don’t distract me with your talks. I am on duty, I’ll show the way to Father Christmas. Quiet. Heard it.

    FIRST SNOWMAN: Another car. You are wrong like usual.

    SECOND SNOWMAN: Listen.


    Sound of bells away.


    SECOND SNOWMAN: Father Christmas, I am here, we are here.


    Sound of bells close.
