Christmas Pageant

(sing, choirs of angels)

Dear Parents:

Greetings from the Children's Choir Department at First Congregational Church! We are all SO excited to see your little "angels" perform on Sunday. (Pardon the pun, tee hee hee)

Just a few notes (oops, another pun! silly me!) before we all gather on Sunday morning:

First, we will supply the angel robes but the children will need to wear white t-shirts, white pants, white socks and white shoes. A white pearl necklace would be nice for the girls. And white hair bows. Oh, and for the boys please buy a white top hat, white cane and white bow tie. Don't go to any trouble.

The pageant begins at 9:00 am, so we will need the children in the choir room promptly at 5:45. As you probably recall from last year, it takes quite a while to get them all lined up. Cots are available if you'd like to just sleep at the church the night before.

Grandparents and other relatives are more than welcome to attend. Please advise them to arrive before dawn if they want a good seat. We don't want a repeat of last year's stampede.

Please have your children listen to their rehearsal CD every day! They only have 25 songs to learn, and I am a little dismayed that some of them are still a little shaky on the harmony for the Hallelujah Chorus.

Also, if they could practice standing still for 45 minutes at a time that would be very helpful.

Just think! Next year they will be in the Kindergarten Choir!

See you on Sunday!

Love, Miss Lesley

You really touched home with this one. I am still laughing. You must have been visiting our church too. My grandson has those same expectations for his "performance" this Sunday. He is dreading it. Whatever happened to the old days of kids singing one or two off-key carols and having fun in the process. Miss Lesley, get plenty of rest. It sounds like you are going to need it.

This was very funny and should be published in a parenting magazine somewhere. It took me back to all those Nativity plays I went to when the kids were small. My theory is that Nativity plays are boring unless something goes terribly wrong; it's when Jesus' leg falls off or Mary refuses to hold the baby that everyone starts getting thoroughly entertained.
