Christmas and the Arts

December 13 - Christmas and the Arts
Did your family attend any special events
or performances during the holidays?
We have attended many Christmas concerts at school over the years. I sang in the chorus and later was in the band. All three of our kids were in the band. These days all the local schools have a day leading up to Christmas where they perform at the mall and I usually drive a group of kids down each year.

Our favorite thing to do in December is to catch the Christmas performance by the Acme Mystery Company at the Spaghetti Warehouse in Syracuse. They do murder mysteries all year long but in December there is a special holiday show where nobody dies but you still have a mystery to solve. The audience gets to participate and we always have a great time.

This time of year is always so busy and the weather so iffy that I'm more likely to see a play or concert at another time of the year.


An Advent Calendar count
down to Christmas!

Who else is participating?

Ha, sort of a "Just gimme the Christmas candy and nobody gets hurt" sort of a mystery! I like that...
