O Come Let Us Adore Him: Christmas Eve at Hillcrest
by Tom Goodman
December 22, 2008
Come celebrate the birth of Jesus with us this Wednesday, Christmas Eve, at 6pm. I think even your youngest children and grandchildren will enjoy the carols, the candles, and the candy canes.
Yep. As part of this year's Christmas Eve celebration, I'm going to read a kids book called The Legend of the Candy Cane. You might know that in 1670, a German choirmaster formed candy sticks into canes to represent a shepherd's
staff, and he used the confection as a part of the Nativity service. At this week's service, the kids will help me pass out candy canes to those in attendance.
I'm looking forward to being a part of your family's Christmas celebration!
