Christmas tree and play

Ascension Lutheran Church in Torrance, CA has a big tree on their front lawn that they light up every Christmas; this year they did a play too.


And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

~ Luke 2:7 ~


And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

~ Matthew 2:11 ~


So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger.

~ Luke 2: 15-16 ~

They even had fake snow—on the ground and blowing out of a machine! 😎

For a while here in SoCal, “snow” blew through the air! 😀 Yes, I was thrilled. I’ve missed snow!

I was experimenting a lot with the camera. Tell me what you think 🙂

Drive by Prairie Avenue and you can see the tree all lighted up 😀
