                             THE CHRISTMAS POPS CONCERT

What is Christmas without music? After all, at the first Christmas, the angels sang.  Though this is early October as I write this, I have to confess, I fight the urge to put my Johnny Mathis Christmas album on every day. I know. But I love, love, love Christmas. I do believe it’s a time of magic and miracles. Love and giving.

Even the saddest Christmases I’ve had, and there have been many in my years, there is still that hope that everything will be all right. That Love will find a way and that if you have faith and believe, dreams really do come true.

In my hometown, we have a Christmas concert the second Saturday of every December. This concert was another of my sister, Nancy’s, favorite organizations to chair. To this day, I still don’t know how she managed her time to create, orchestrate and plan so many events, especially since many of them were at Christmas. But she did.

The Christmas Pops is truly unique. It’s held at our Civic Auditorium, built in the 1920’s and houses over 3,000 people. The main floor, where basketball used to be played when I was in high school, is filled with linen covered tables and chairs, decorated with flowers and candles and the ceiling is draped, flung and crisscrossed with thousands of Christmas lights. The La Porte County Symphony plays as various choral groups, the Children’s Choir, soloists and local harmonizing groups perform.  The night is upbeat and fun. Everyone dresses up, lots of tuxes and gowns; Christmas dresses and fun Christmas ties, I have to say.

Before the Pops, I gave a pre-party and again, pulled out as many “stops” as I could.

In HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, Adam rents a horse-drawn carriage to take Joy to the concert. It’s only five blocks from the greenhouses to the Civic Auditorium, (true) but the night is romantic and fun. On the way back, Adam finally asks Joy to stay in Indian Lake with him and not go back to New York and her fiancĂ©, Chuck.  Can you guess her answer?  You’ll have to delve into the pages of the book for that. Until then….
Merry Christmas to all!!!
