A Christmas Tale

Submitted By Carenda Kiser

"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose . . ." The magic season is here again, with scents of cinnamon candles and housebound evergreens, open fires and Yuletide carols. And in the midst of frantic gift buying, we dare to hope for a brief interlude of childlike wonder and enchantment-a reincarnation of childhood-waking on Christmas morning to creep downstairs to a lit tree and wonderfully wrapped gifts, anticipation in our eyes, wondering if we'll be surprised.

Instead, have you been surprised by corporate takeovers, bullies on the playground, and on the battlefield, or just life's tedious repetition? Perhaps you are even feeling a little "bah humbugish" this year.

If life has been a little less than Christmas-magical, have we got a story for you! A story of now and yesterday, of mangers and wisemen, seekers and finders. This is their story, and this is your story-skillfully woven in song and narrative, through troubadour and orchestra.

"A Christmas Tale" will be performed in four parts every Sunday in December at Harbor Light Sanctuary in Fremont. Start the journey with "The Beginning" on December 2, and follow the story with "The Longing" December 9, "The Visit" December 16, and "The Finale" on December 23. Pre-show music and entertainment begins at 10 a.m., and the performance begins at 10:30 a.m. Admission is free.
