Despite missing our star actor who always played the all-important roll of Caesar Augustus in the Christmas Eve nativity, the part was admirably played by his understudy, Rose.
A lovely angel proclaimed glad tidings of great joy.
The shepherds were convincingly afraid and awed.
And Mary was beautiful.
I don't know if it's because we have a missionary out, but the spirit of Christmas was felt especially strong this year.
Then we moved on to our decidedly un-reverant time of Christmas Eve:
The Christmas Jammie Pyramid.
It was the most calm, injury-free pyramid we've had in years.
Once again, maybe it has something to do with a certain missing missionary.
We hope your Christmas was Merry and Bright.
