A gang of girls would meet up in the house of the nun and they organized the party there. They would make a sponge cake and eat it with a chocolate drink. Then they would go to midnight mass. They used to sing the songs.They used to put their shoes at the chimney and they would get small presents; things that they would need during the year; clothes and things for the school.On Xmas day they had a meal at home.
