Christmas Club (The Revival) - week 2

Sian has resurrected her Christmas Club for the three Sunday's leading up to Christmas this year. Hope on over to this post to see the details.

And so...
    at Christmas we ...
like to try and go to the Scout Carol concert. We started when Ben was a Beaver and have only missed a couple of years since. Although he is no longer in the 1st Runwell Scout Group we still like to go along and will be doing so this evening.

Ben (Cub) is front row, first on the right. They quite often had a performance from the Cubs
The music is played by one of the leaders on a keyboard, we all join in the carols with gusto and then finish the evening being served sausage rolls, mince pies and mulled wine by the cubs and scouts. An integral part of our Christmas and once we have been we feel Christmas has really begun.
And here he is first on the left as a Scout!
 I hope you have enjoyed reading about one of our Christmas traditions. Please hop on over to Sian's blog today to find her magical story (her writing is always magical!) and the links to other Christmas stories.

What a lovely tradition!

It sounds like one of those absolutely perfect events without which it just doesn't feel like Christmas! (Plus anything with sausage rolls at the end is always a winner in my book lol)

Sounds like a sweet thing to do. I miss the children's carols services now they are teenagers

A lovely tradition, no wonder you still go along. Like Ally, I miss these Christmas events now that the children have left primary school behind.

We used to go to the school concerts and also the carol concerts at church. I dont think brownies or guides did there own when I was little.

How lovely that you still go to these concerts! I have to admit that when Matt left Scouts behind, so did we.

What an enjoyable tradition, and yay for carol singing.

That's so fun and lovely that you still go along. Carol singing always gets me in the christmas spirit!

Jo said...

That sounds a lovely way to kick off Christmas x

Miriam said...

Oh you have reminded me of beaver and scout Christmases past. I was a beaver leader so the Christmas entertainment has lovely memories for me. Like Karen, when Ben left so did we.
