Christmas Program


At the day care center that Sherry uses for her children, each December they have a -- gasp -- Christmas program. Not a Holiday Festival. A Christmas program. Nothing even remotely politically correct about it. One of the real benefits of a day care center that is affiliated with a Mennonite church.

This year's program was on Tuesday night. It was about all of the stars in the sky and which one would have the honor of being over the stable in Bethlehem. It was wonderful. We laughed and -- truth be told -- we cried. If nothing else gets you in the Christmas spirit, I recommend a Mennonite day care Christmas program.

If you are interested in getting up close and personal with the two most gorgeous children Near Philadelphia, you can click on the photo. Sam, wearing a striped sweater, is in the center with his hands together. And Caroline is the shoeless miss on the floor in front.

Yours for manger scenes and Christmas stars,

I'm with you Nancy.....I am not sure when it (sadly) became "not politically correct" to celebrate the reason for the season.....and I loved the poem in your previous post!

Couldn't agree with you more on both accounts...Christmas being the reason for the season and the two adorable babies. They are precious.

I would love to hear the story of the stars and which one gets chosen.

What better place to have your children but in this kind of day care. The earlier they learn this the better. What dear children, You can be very proud.

We had to cancel our Christmas program due to snow - sort of sad. These are some very great memories in the making.

Amen. Gorgeous children indeed! Merry Christmas.

That is the main thing I miss about teaching--those kids just pull at your heart strings.
