The Star Singers

An Old Custom in Austria: 
On the 3rd of January, 
four fancifully dressed young girls will visit your home.
They identify themselves as the "Three Kings"
who came to Bethlehem  to celebrate the birth of  Jesus Christ.
They are: Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar.
The fourth one personifies the Star of Bethlehem, who guided the "Three Kings"
They sing Carols, wish you "Good Luck" for the coming year,
and collect donations for a worthy cause.
This year it was for a Children's Village in impoverished Ecuador,
