This Very Night! …A Christmas Musical Celebrating Jesus’ Birth

“Step back in time, to the days of the Roman Empire and the birth of Jesus Christ. More than 2,000 years later, millions of people worldwide still celebrate His birth. Come see why Jesus is still relevant in 2014.”

Since 2004, more than 18,000 people have experienced this original Christmas musical. Highlights include live animals and a Children’s Choir.

This is the FINAL season for this production. We have seen it once before, but REALLY wanted to go one last time and hear my beautiful cousin’s solo. Shelly and her husband Mark have been a regular part of this production for years and as their children have grown, they have also been involved in some aspect. This year Shelly had a solo, her daughters Jessica & Jaylyn had solo parts and oldest son Jonathan sang in the choir, We just had to see it one last time. It’s a production that really puts in to perspective the TRUE meaning and celebration of Christmas!

And then a perfect ending to this day was dinner with our family. We went to a very interesting restaurant with Glenn & Holly. ( David’s brother & wife)

Out of The Halifax Explosion which shattered the City’s North End on 6 December 1917, rose the Hydrostone District, an English-style garden suburb. Completed in 1920, this well-preserved neighbourhood was designed according to the most-up-to-date yet practical principles of town planning. The buildings, all variations on the same architectural theme and all constructed with “Hydro-Stone” concrete blocks, are aesthetically arranged along each side of wide treed courts. The houses and landscape contribute to a remarkable sense of time and place. Holly has been telling us about this district, she knew I would love it. We will go again in the summer to take full advantage and really ‘See’ the area but for tonight, it was a beautiful setting for a lovely dinner!

This is why I LOVE the weekends in December. So many fun things to see and do.

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
