Hometown Christmas, part 2

Enjoy a bit of hometown Christmas spirit with me.  Through a series of last year’s December activities, residents of northeast Mississippi came alive.

Daily Corinthian headlines read:

Corinth Symphony Shares Gift of Music

Church Volunteers Bring Christmas Alive

Corinth Holiday Tradition Returns

Thanks to the leadership efforts and faithful membership at First Baptist Church, the ever popular Singing Christmas Tree is back aglow and full of sound.  Begun in 1985 the tree has been a Corinth tradition for many years.  The new 2011 eight-tier metal structure towers over 25 feet, has well over 50,000 programmable lights, and can accommodate up to 75 singers.

1st Presbyterian Church brochure read:

The Sanctuary Choir Christmas Cantata, “Night of the Father’s Love.”

The night the ancient prophecies were fulfilled;

The night of the angelic announcement of the birth as

the star shone brightly above, leading others to witness

this incredible gift of love from God in human form—

Jesus, the babe

Other Hometown Christmas Happenings

The trees were bare, grass brown, but our small-town America Christmas spirit energetic, bustling with holiday activities last December.  I was enthralled with capturing last year’s Christmas season through the camera lens.  Similar sentiments and activities abound this year, and I can be found out n’ about once again with my camera clutched tightly in my right hand.  What fun!
