So this year we finally got to have our Live Nativity. We tried seven years ago and it was an insufferable -50ºC with the windchill. Henceforth and thusly, we wussed out. I always said that if Baby Jesus had to be born in Saskatchewan in December, He would have passed on it! LOL 😎 We had better weather this time around, but not too splendid. Heinous East wind which made -10ºC feel a whole lot colder. But it was worth it! The kids were super cute, the animals were a riot especially when the sheep took off down Main St.! It was fun to have more things going on for the town Christmas Tree light up. And, because I’m a Pastor, it was super awesome to present the real meaning of Christmas: That God has become flesh and dwelt among us! It is a message that is ever being eclipsed by seasonal consumerism and politically-correct wish-wash. Not us though. No sir! We’ve got the real deal Christmas message: Baby Jesus was born of a Virgin to bring forth the salvation of all mankind! #BooYa! That’s a Christmas message I can get behind. Born to set us free from death and sin Jesus was. Gloria In Excelsis Deo!
We had the shepherds, the sheep, the angels, the wise men, the holy family n’ all. And, we served hot chocolate & apple cider! 🙂 It was such a joy to give witness to Christmas, sing some carols and freeze our
hands feet butts nards tails off all at the same time! 😀 We’re hoping this can become an annual part of the town festivities.
