Christmas is coming

xmas pageant


The street parade heralds in Christmas

Father Christmas arrives in his sleigh

A carnival atmosphere delights the children and adults

lining the streets of Adelaide

A tall pine tree with coloured lights adorns our city square

The shopping malls have tinsel and Christmas bells hanging from the roofs

Churches are lighting the Advent candles preparing the way for Christmas messages

Thoughts and prayers reach out to the needy and disadvantaged

In parks as twilight falls candles are lit as voices join together singing familiar carols

My thoughts are for preparation for Christmas day and buying presents

Families will gather where possible from near and far for Christmas celebrations

The long-sought roast turkey and Christmas pudding is being replaced with barbeques and salads

The older generation now sitting back as the family take over organizing the day

Joyfully presents will be exchanged and opened

Creating memories that will last a life time
