Online programme "Circus for Cheerful Christmas" to light up festive season
     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) has launched the free online programme "Circus for Cheerful Christmas" by Hong Kong Circus to light up the festive season for people of all ages.
     The story takes place in a village in Finland. It is said that the Star of Bethlehem on the Christmas tree points the way for people who have gone astray. One day, a naughty reindeer accidentally breaks it, leaving the whole village in darkness. The antlers of the reindeer pulling Santa's sleigh have also lost their magic power! So, they look into a crystal ball for clues to resolve the situation, and it tells them they need to go to the highest part of the snow-capped mountains to absorb the northern lights in order to bring light back to the village.
     This engaging five-episode series features circus entertainment such as fire stunts, acrobatics, dance, hula hoop acts and aerial action. The series will take people into the fascinating world in reindeer country, and the episodes will be launched from today (December 24) onwards till January next year. Details are as follows:
Episode 1   The Star of Bethlehem
Episode 2   The Magic Crystal Ball
Episode 3   Escape From the Black Hole
Episode 4   The Dazzling Northern Lights
Episode 5   Red Ribbon and Starry Lights
