This photo was taken by my son, Chris, several years ago, when he an his family visited New York City for the Christmas festivities. As you can see, the shot was taken from seats in the auditorium of Radio City Music Hall. There are seats for 6015 people. The shows run from the end of November until the end of December. Some days there are four shows, others have five, and there are even six shows on the very busy days. We took our children when they were growing up and bought tickets in September . All the shows sell out. This is the home of the rockets the amazing dancers, there is ice skating during the show, secular music, and Santa taking off and flying across the stage. I will never forget the first time I went when at the end of the show, there was a living nativity complete with camels, sheep , and donkeys as well as the usual kings, shepherds, angels, and Holy Family with a baby Jesus! Even today when there is so much political correctness and insistence on removing Christ from Christmas, this tradition continues at Radio City. No one demonstrates or condemns the declaration of “Christ the Reason for the Season.” As the pageant unfolds, a poem is read called One Solitary Life which I am including at the end.
No more words are necessary . . . . . . Have a blessed Christmas. . . .
