School christmas play

We were lucky enough to get tickets to attend Beth's schools Christmas play this evening. Mum and Dad had gone last year (we were in Orlando) and they said it had been very good. So I went along expecting the traditional Mary and Joesph and Angels, shepherds and Kings and lots of Carols.

We were disappointed. The concert had a modern twist to it and while they played songs the children did not sing along but they 'danced'. I can't really explain it - the nearest I can get to it is as if they were deaf and signing to it. I suppose it didn't help me in that it was in the Church itself and even with a sound system it was too quiet for me to hear properly.

We made not have enjoyed it too much but Beth did and that is what counts.

I tried to upload a couple of photos but as I took that at full strength dial up doesn't like them

Wendy, I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your granddaughter's program. For what it is worth, it has been many years since any of the schools in our area have had a traditional program. They can't even call it a Christmas Program now, it is just a winter program. I too miss the traditional.
