Charity Christmas Choir

Last week, we had been to the African Promise‘s inaugural Christmas Choir at St Giles-in-the-Fields Church. It was a small and lovely church. It was decorated very mildly and had a soothing effect.

If this photo looks a little shaken, it is because of that amazing mulled wine and the very yummy mince pie

They also had a stall of handicrafts by African women, which were very good. Of course, we got a hand-made cloth lion (I haven’t taken a photograph of that…forgot about it until I was writing this down). The Gospel were amazing, we got to sing the carols with everyone (the lyrics were in the small booklet, which made it easier for me), the wine and mince pies were very very good, the readings were funny. All in all, it was a very lovely evening.

This photograph is of the church where that unique star filled Christmas tree was photographed earlier.

And, this tree was made of…

There is a church on the way back from my gym which hosted a different kind of Christmas Tree. I have been wanting to ‘click’ it for sometime and got the chance yesterday night. I didn’t want to intrude during the festival times. It was rather empty yesterday. OK, so here is that tree, which is made of stars. Yes, just stars. In daylight it looks a little empty! But at night, it is the best sight to behold.

And on closer look, I guess it is one of the best ways to put up a tree. Use the kids of the families attending the church to create a star and add their wishes to it and put that up in the tree?

What do you think about this tree? I just loved it. Isn’t it very cute and creative.
