    And you either need to choose one event on a given day, or be able to multi-task or split yourself into two or three to go to all of them at once!

    Yeah, I think the MHICC should try to do a better job at co-ordinating everyone… As it is, the notice this morning had us going to the Blue Service, the Play and Belair Uniting, the Carols at Blackwood Hills Baptist, the Midnight Mass, and then sleeping for about two hours before the Christmas Day service. I sort of wish I could loop time or something, because there are a lot of interesting-looking events on at the same time.

    For the most part, they’re all quite near each other. Blackwood HIlls Baptist and Blackwood Uniting are maybe 500m apart, and Belair Uniting and Holy Innocents’ are across the road from each other. So I suppose you’re meant to pick your events that way.

    To Whom It May Concern –
    Yes, I’m aware that anything prior to sunset on the 24th is Advent and not Christmas, and I took precautions in the post to show that I had not made the contrary assumption:
    – I placed “week” in brackets to show that I do not equate the entire week to Christmas.
    – I used purple, which is the colour of Advent, rather than white/gold, which is the colour of Christmas/Feast Days.
    If anyone has any further concern about the advertisement of “Christmas Services”, “Christmas Celebrations” and the like for days other than Christmas Day itself, the concern should be taken up with the church bodies in question – namely Holy Innocents’ Anglican Church Belair and Blackwood and Belair Uniting Churches.
