Christmas Eve 2012
.
  
Left: A recent years' tradition of poinsettias to remember those loved ones from christmases past, and in front the rickety 
creche readied with cloth strips for the baby Jesus. Right: The nativity scene finally ready with everyone there for the Birth of Jesus.

                 
Left: Our large cross, decorated with gold cloth to symbolize the magnificence of the birth of Jesus.  Right: Our Advent
"wreath", with its 4 Advent candles and the center white one for Christmas.

                 
Left: One of 8 bronze wall holders for Christmas greens to bring color to the nave.  Right: A long tradition in our church,
a Christmas tree in our worship space.  Used to be a real tree (partly to show our long heritage as being the Christmas
tree farm town); now is artificial just to manage it better. Decorated with strictly Christmas story related items.
