Hallelujah!

December 11, 2011

I like to keep a full schedule of Christmas activities. Some we repeat every year, like this drive-through Nativity which is pretty awesome. Some we sample once and never return. One particular event has been on my radar for a few years, but I have never been able to schedule it before (2 consecutive years of afternoon Church!). This was my year! I still almost didn’t go, though, because, well, I was afraid. Afraid it would be long, as The Messiah is wont. Afraid it would be packed. Afraid there would be no parking. Afraid I wouldn’t get the score. Afraid it was too far.

Friends: I was wrong on all counts. It was fantastic! Short, sweet, and made all the better by the addition of friends. I may have to make this a tradition and skip afternoon Church next year! Plus, my kids have been singing the Hallelujah Chorus all week–it’s pretty impressive.

Lily recorded it thus:
