my results exactly. Who says December 25th wasn’t the day? All the ancient churches celebrate around that date. Why are there no records of people complaining that the Nativity feast day was moved?
Going to have the Midnight Mass Marathon this evening . . . we do a "pre game show" while folks who haven't been since last year are trying to find seats. We'll play and sing traditional motets and carols for 1/2 hour before the service. You don't realize how long 1/2 hour is until you have to sing!
Both my husband and I play in the handbell choir AND sing in the Traditional Choir. There are two other handbell ringers who sing, too. So there's a lot of scampering back and forth as the singers run to take their places at the handbell table, and vice versa. Somehow we will survive, we always manage to.
