Holiday is the time to bring cheer to lower-income kids

The cops are calling it a blue Christmas as they carry the holiday celebration to children from lower-income neighborhoods in San José and Heredia.

Over the weekend more than 400 children were treated to gifts, music and other holiday traditions at the Museo de los Niños.

Juan José Andrade, Fuerza Pública director general, was among those distributing gifts. The weekend activities are just some of what the security ministry plans for the holidays.

Several vocal groups, including the Oratorio Don Bosco, participated.

In keeping with the Navidad Azul theme, Santa showed up in a blue suit instead of the traditional red one. The color, of course, is representative of the Fuerza Pública. Other officers donned wigs and clown costumes to entertain the children.
