Wonderful Way to Begin 2009!

Whatever your holiday celebration, you may want to consider attending a performance of the Boar's Head and Yule Log Festival. It's rich in color, sound and spirit and can be enjoyed by all! I recommend getting there early for a free seat. Below you'll find details as posted on the UCC website:

"Seasonal treats at UCC don’t end when the New Year begins!
Saturday, January 3, and Sunday, January 4, the well-loved Epiphany delight, the Boar’s Head and Yule Log Festival will be re-enacted in our Sanctuary. Performances will be held at 3 and 5 p.m. each day.

This will be the 33rd year for the pageant to be presented by UCC as a gift to the community. Be sure to invite family and friends to this celebrated festival – it lasts only one hour and appeals to all ages since music and movements constantly occur!

Already old in tradition when presented at Queens College, Oxford, in 1340, The Boar’s Head and Yule Log Festival is perhaps the oldest continuing festival of the Christmas season. It was a holiday tradition in many manor houses in England and it came to this country in Colonial days.
All performances of the BHYL Festival are open to the public, most seats are free of charge. Those holding seats for family and friends, must release them 30 minutes prior to the start of a performance. Because of this, persons are urged to come early to get seats. Limited reserved seating is available for $12 per seat by calling the church at 817.926.6631, ext. 157"
