My Favorite Holiday - Christmas!
This is the season the ancients chose to celebrate the birth of Christ. Glory to God in the Highest, peace and good tidings on earth.
I went to visit my sister for a few days and in addition to my sewing, her baking, feeding animals, garage-saling, and shopping, we managed to go look at the lights in the Ft. Smith, Arkansas parks...and best of all, a living Nativity at one of the churches. Actors and actresses dress up in costumes to play the parts. Sheep, cows, donkeys, goats and camels also make their debut in the live scenes. I forget the name of the church that put it on, but it was so beautiful and moving. We all loved it.
The final scene in the living Nativity - the wisemen bringing gifts to the Saviour.
The park's lighted Nativity display.
Ahhh...the belle of the Mississippi and other rivers - a lighted paddlewheel riverboat. That's my sister and I standing in front of it.
We had a great time together and plan to do it again.
