Tradition #14 - Tab Choir Concert

Tradition 14. Go to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert!

Well, Friday was the big concert day. We went with Matt's parents
and our friend Lindsay,

and Dawn!

It was her first year. She had a good time I think, despite the late hour causing a little sleepiness. The concert was wonderful as always. The King Singers were so good, but as usual, my favorite parts were the Tab Choir songs. With songs like The First Nowell and Angels, from the Realms of Glory by Mack Wilberg how can you go wrong?

I think that the Christmas spirit happens to emanate from with the Conference Center and Temple Square. The closer I am to it, the happier I feel. (See how crazed I look in that picture.) Luckily my home holds that same feeling for me. In fact, on Saturday morning after the concert, I could swear that it was Christmas day at our house. We were up at 7 with our kids, it was still dark out, and we all had a cookie for breakfast. The Christmas music was playing and all was happy and bright. Oh, what a great day. But Saturday is another post for another day.

I love the Tabernacle Choir! I had a chance to see them in concert when I lived in Washington. I can only imagine how magical it would be to hear them sing Christmas songs. (Hearing it on CD just isn't the same.) I'm so jealous. A good jealous though--like I'm happy you went, but sad I couldn't.
