Musical Chairs, or Going to Jerusalem, is a favorite game of the
children. Someone who plays the piano well starts up a lively tune and
the children march around a row of chairs which have been arranged
facing alternately in opposite directions. There should be one less
chair than the number of players.
When the music stops, each child tries to find a seat. Someone will be
left out, as there is one chair short. This one takes another chair
from the row and the game continues until there is one child left with
no chair. This one has won the game.
