I’m writing this post on a Saturday morning at Panera Bread. My oldest daughter is at our church rehearsing for the children’s musical that they will be performing next week and I have some free time before I need to pick her up.
To celebrate the Birth of Christ, the true meaning of Christmas for many Christians, many churches have concerts, musicals, plays, candle lighting services, and other programs through out December that lead up to the much anticipated Christmas Eve service.
Many churches welcome non-members to attend the activities and they are often open to the community and free to attend.
Most years, I feel that the night of the children’s program at our church is the beginning of my family’s Christmas celebration. We usually decorate the tree and start shopping long before the night of the program, but the musical reminds me, personally, of why my family celebrates Christmas.
Do you attend any Christmas activities at your church? Let us know in the comments.
