Somehow, it's not quite what I was going for when I began creating the theme. I was picturing trumpets and lots of brass and the word joy in all kinds of ways and places.
We typically have volunteers who decorate the tables, a catered lunch, singing, occasionally special music, a Christmas story read by our pastor's wife, and an ornament exchange. I'm not out to change the whole deal the first year, but I would like to maybe spice things up a bit. So tell me, dear readers, about Christmas events you've attended. Obviously I need them since I won't be using the antlered deer in a sweater graphic anytime soon.
