Christmas Cheer

I love Christmas.  It’s full of festive gatherings, caroling, and all kinds of Christmas movies and plays.  Some churches have live nativities.  I enjoy all of them. 

This weekend I went to a concert at the Mauldin Cultural Center.  I read about it in that day’s paper about 2 hours before it began Because it was just around the corner from my home, I was able to go at the last minute.

It was put on by a local music teacher, Cindy Overfield, who gives private voice lessons in the area.  There were about 15-20 musicians who sang Christmas carols, both secular and Christian, accompanied by Doug Overfield on keyboard or recorded music.

It was a real treat to find a Christmas program, put on for free, to build up my Christmas spirit.  What have you found this year that’s boosted your enjoyment of the season?  Share it here.

I also love Christmas! :) I'm glad you were able to make the concert. Sounds like fun. Maybe it's the introvert in me but what boosts my enjoyment is being home with the Christmas tree and garland lights on, with traditional Christmas music playing in the background and a fire blazing nearby. :) I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!!!!

I love Christmas music too, Cathy! It puts the Christmas spirit in the air. A blazing fire sounds wonderful too. Have a wonderful Christmas.
