This is the time of year when those of us who have young kids enjoy not only the magic of Christmas and Santa Claus but also the school rituals of nativity plays and carol singing.

For my five-year-old and seven-year-old attending a national school on Dublin city's north side, it is especially interesting.

In their classes are children from all over Eastern Europe, Africa and Asia. Many are Muslim, some are Hindu.
