Every year we have a special service at church, called the Christmas Candlelight Service. It the last service before Christmas Day, and the whole service is by candlelight.
A few effects were incorporated from the Christmas Play.
Reading the Christmas story...
There was a time when anyone could choose their favorite Christmas carol, for everyone to sing.
The singing was accompanied by the piano + special music on the violins.
Everyone had their own candle to hold during the service. The little people loved theirs especially. =)
"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called wonderful, counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace."
