One More Christmas Carol

A few days before Christmas, our family waltzed on over to the Hale Center Theater to see the play “A Christmas Carol.” When I’m independently wealthy, I intend to take my family every year–as a new and glorious Christmas tradition. (Emily–look up, look up! April, Jacob–smile.)

Of course, we weren’t allowed to take pictures of the actual performance, still, it was all there and positively perfect!

There was the ghost of Christmas Past….sad, sad, sad—

the Ghost of Christmas Present…quite an eye opener—

and the creepy Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come. While this spooky dude was on the stage, Lyndi leaned over and whispered, “Expecto Patronum!”

We. Lost. It.

So, yeah–at the most solemn part of the whole show–weeping, wailing, gnashing of teeth–and we’re completely engulfed in a preposterous, hysterical giggling fit.


If we could only learn to behave.

Not holding my breath. (PHILLIP! For the millionth time—no sticking your tongue out in the family picture!)

  1. Love it. I have been there and can appreciate how much you enjoyed yourselves (even with the giggling!) Wish we could go and see that one. It is one of my favorites. Looks like you all had an amazing time!

  2. That sounds like so much fun. I haven’t seen the play or the original movie in a long time. I might have to start doing that.

  3. Are you from Utah then? HCT is our favorite! It’s a bit different every time with the actor’s adding their own personality to the show. We love it.

  4. Someday I would love to either be a season ticket holder to all their plays and even try to be IN on of their plays. That would be awesome!

  5. Thanks for arranging that for us Mom… it was SOOO much fun! 😀 I’m glad I didn’t end up yelling out a spell or two, because then we’d probably never get to go back, and that would be a huge bummer. 😉
