Christmas Bird Musical marks the beginning of Christmas time festivities in Ruka-Kuusamo!

The blue evening twilight is surrounding the Ruka fell. While nature is asleep under its snow shroud, strange things happen in the forest – just where the forest spirits live. The Christmas bird, the bird of fortune will arrive and start singing and bringing Christmas spirit in the forest at the same time as the stars and the northern lights appear in the sky.

A stunning Christmas bird musical about the battle between good and evil at Ruka Ski Stadium, performed by pupils of the local Ruka school. The Christmas bird, bird of fortune, brings Christmas spirit to everybody and the musical ends to spectacular fireworks.

Over the years, the school's own Christmas party has grown into an important musical starting Christmas in the Ruka area. The Christmas Bird is still a Christmas party at Ruka School - but not a traditional party in the school gym, but a musical performed in the Ruka Stadium area. The Christmas Bird musical involves all the pupils at Ruka School, from preschoolers to 9th class, a total of more than 200 children. The youngest pupils charm as a group of Christmas elves, and the older pupils can play a role of an ice queen or an animal, as a singer or narrator. In addition to the pupils, the musical requires the entire school staff and the participation of several parents and other collaborators.

The Christmas Bird Musial is sponsored by many entrepreneurs in the Ruka area, the most important of which is the school's sponsor company, Rukakeskus. The musical ends with spectacular fireworks.
