A Night At The Carol Service
Have just come back from my granddaughter's carol service which was held in a nearby church.
Good - Miss Martha excelled herself in the singing department.
Not Good - Flipping teacher kept standing in front of my special child waving her arms around so I only caught glimpses of the darling.
Good - All the children sang beautifully.
Not So Good - The 'carols' sounded more like middling pop songs. I like traditional carols, such as Away In The Manger', 'Adeste Fideles' and so on but expect Latin would be too big an ask in a Presbyterian Church.
Quite Good - The church was comfortable and roomy.
Less Good - It was far too warm. I wonder did it have one of those biomass boilers that are causing such a scandal these days.
Good - We all got a Benediction at the end. You can never have enough Benedictions.
Less Good - Too much Christianity.
Not Good At All - Hardly any Paganism. Just the one Christmas Tree at the entrance.
Good - Free entry.
Not Good - At exit begging bowls brandished by little children.
Better - No pressure.
