The Reindeer WhispererCunningham, TN – The Montgomery Central Elementary School’s 5th Grade and Central Sound held their annual Christmas Program on Thursday, December 17th, 2015. This year they performed the musical “The Reindeer Whisperer”.

It begins the day before Christmas Eve. Santa Claus is ready for his annual test drive before the big day with his reindeer. However, he finds the reindeer can’t fly, or maybe they won’t fly. Santa and the elves know something is wrong, but they can’t figure it out.

“Silent Night”, Do You Know the Origins of this famous Christmas Song?

 

Christmas Gift BagsClarksville, TN – “Silent Night” is perhaps the best-loved Christmas carol of all times. Somehow the simple words convey the mystery and simplicity of the real Christmas story better than any other hymn, at least in my humble opinion.

The original carol was entitled, Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht; it was written in German at the request of an Austrian priest, Father Josef Mohr.

According to www.silentnight.web.za, “on December 24th, 1818, Joseph Mohr journeyed to the home of musician-schoolteacher Franz Gruber who lived in nearby Arnsdorf. He showed his friend the poem he had written four years before and asked him to add a melody and guitar accompaniment so that it could be sung at Midnight Mass.”

The Bells of Christmas

 

Written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Christmas PresentsI heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Greatest Gifts of All

 

Greatest_GiftClarksville, TN – Christmas is the time of year when we should give some serious thought to the process of giving and what it really means to show our love to others.

I suspect that if most of us tried to remember the best gifts we’ve ever received, we’d find that many of them didn’t necessarily cost a great deal of money. Instead they had a lovely share of thoughtfulness behind them.

One of the gifts I received that I’ll never forget was from a blind man who sat for several hours at his tape recorder and taped for me music he believed I’d enjoy and some of his own words about what my friendship for him had meant. Another gift I’ll never forget came from a student and her mother who made a CD of favorite Christmas songs for me. I listen to that CD in my car every Christmas because it has so many classics like Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” and James Taylor’s “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”

Other gifts I’ve received are on a different scale.

History of the National Christmas Tree

 

US Capitol Christmas Tree and Other Forerunners to the National (Community) Christmas Tree

US National Park ServiceWashington, D.C. – The first community Christmas celebration in Washington, D.C was December 24th, 1913. The Christmas tree and related pageantry occurred on the East Plaza of the US Capitol on Christmas Eve. It was meant as a celebration for all of Washington, rich and poor, young and old, although a special emphasis was placed on the children.1

The forty-five minute program, replete with angel figures in white robes, nativity tableaux, carols, and Boy Scouts waving American flags, was modeled largely on community celebrations in other cities.
