“It’s so cold, it’s so cold, it’s difficult to read and write. Teeth are chattering, teeth are chattering, and all the hair on heads stand tall (in the cold)”

“Kasto jaado Kasto jaado, padhna, lekhna garho. Daanta bajcha kit-kit-kit. Daanta bajcha kit-kit-kit. Tuppi huncha thaado!”

“It’s so cold, it’s so cold, it’s difficult to read and write. Teeth are chattering, teeth are chattering, and all the hair on heads stand tall (in the cold)” [translation]

Sunmaya Tamang from Sunrise Children Associations Inc (SCAI), visited the Jadibuti Community Center to spread some Christmas cheer. SCAI team distributed 80 winter fleece and wool hats by their young adults who are giving back to the community. The children excitedly picked up the catchy song taught by Sunmaya and also quickly taught their friends the song so by the end of the day everyone was singing the song, with their heads warm and bright.
