The Christmas Spirit

This is the Boston Pops orchestra and Chorus as shown on net this evening from 7:00-8:00. They performed a wide variety of seasonal music with background lighting changing with the mood of the music. Immediately following the Boston Pops is "Christmas in Norway with  the St. Olaf Choir" which we are now watching. It was filmed in a beautiful Cathedral setting with Choirs on either end of  open sanctuary. We enjoy this type of music that is provided by net this time of year as much as anything we see on television. Each performance we see seems a bit better than the previous one.
 This second picture is also of the Boston Pops group where a narrator dramatically recited The Night Before Christmas. This also shows our lighted tree in the Dining room as well the quilt that Carolyn made for us some time ago. It is draped over the back of a heavy old chair that I inherited from my Grandfather Walker. Being able to relax in this setting  and receiving cards, letters, and telephone calls, is an ideal way of preparing spiritually for Christmas. One such call from my sister Janice in California, solved our question of who had a box sent to us a week ago from Omaha Steaks. The Styrofoam box with dry ice, was delivered by UPS with the message: "Merry Christmas from our Family to Yours!"
