Christmas Party!!

I have a readers theater that has lots of scriptures and music that requires almost no practice and allows the kids to dress up as whatever they want on the day in question and just go on in that role: Takes between 20 and 40 minutes depending on how many verses of the songs.  PM me if you want me to send a copy.

We have three wards in our building so all the bishops decided to do all the Christmas parties the first weekend of December.  The first ward to meet on Sunday always has their Christmas party on the first Friday night.  They set up all the tables according to a template that fits the most seats into the cultural hall.  They take nothing down and only clean up their mess and decorations.  The ward that meets second on Sunday always has their Christmas party on Saturday Morning.  They don't have to set anything up or take anything down.  The ward that meets last on Sunday always has their Christmas party Saturday night.  They set nothing up but are in charge of taking everything down.  Every year when the Sunday meeting schedule rotates the Christmas party schedule rotates as well.  

We meet at 9 on Sunday morning so that means we are doing our Christmas party Friday night.  We're doing potluck chili and cinnamon roles/corn bread for the food, with simple table decorations.  The Elder's Quorum and YW are in charge of the party this year so they are doing it daddy/daughter style with dads and girls creating a cute area for Santa to meet with the kids, with a background so that parents can take pictures with Santa if they want.  And some of the YW are going to dress up as elves (with the dad of one of our nonmember girls being Santa).

Last year the RS was in charge and they had Santa in one half of the building and then had all the YW/YM in the RS room to create a living nativity that ward members could walk through.  The kids were all dressed up (with extras as angels), with the lights turned down low and instrumental Christmas hymns playing in the background.  It was really beautiful.

Our ward had a talent show, including exhibits of crafts, arts, etc (I showed several paintings)... we hung them on the wall... we had refreshments, and a visit from Santa... and a reading from the Bible of the Savior's birth.
