This is a great time of year to capture a free concert or event in the community. Google, ask neighbors, colleagues, Facebook for ideas on what to do in the coming weeks ahead of time. Too often we think that everyone has to cost a lot of money. This is a time of year when most cities have some kind of free venue with holidays decorations all about!
Also, I would like to remind everyone about good old fashion Christmas Caroling. If not door to door, then maybe as a family? Too much? Why? I think memorizing songs and singing together is such a wonderful feeling of togetherness. Children love memorizing and singing songs. Elderly people love singing as well. Don't use computer technology for this. Good old fashioned reading lyrics and singing to not overstimulate the brain is a super fun way to relax and get into the spirit of the season. Feel this season through music and song!
I know there is a Passion of the Christ weekend coming up in Long Beach this weekend. Wardlow Road off Bellflower is home to several churches within a few block radius. They get together to host music, hot cider and treats. People walk from church to church taking in the holiday scenes and welcome from each of the churches. It is Friday to Sunday. Unfortunately I could not find a link on Google. Strange! If you have more details please feel free to share. For now, I'll guess December 13 to 15 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. to be safe.
