Advent’s coming: keep it simple!

How not to go all out, for all the right reasons.

    Hi Simcha,

    If it would interest you or anyone in your sphere, I have a Christmas pageant structured around the O Antiphons (the historical basis for “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel”) that the kids at my parish are performing right now. The useful thing about it, is that it explicates the imagery in each antiphon, grounds it in the Old Testament prophecy, and then ties it directly into one of the episodes of the Nativity story. I just saw that you were using the hymn, and that your family might have fun with this too.
