“The True Story of Santa Claus” – Sunday

Above: On Sundays, kids get to have their picture taken with an antique Santa Claus, which would shed light on his origins as St. Patrick. Nicholas. It’s just one way St. Christmas party. Anne for the family will highlight the religious meaning of the holiday. (LR image cropped from flickr by Snapshots of the Past and event flyer)

St Anne’s Parish invites families to a special Brunch this Sunday. The feast will include many of the festivities associated with the Christmas season, but with a religious focus.

Although registration is not required, participants are encouraged to RSVP at [email protected].

Earlier this fall, promotions for the December 4 event focused on a staged reading of the play “The True Story of Santa Claus” plus Christmas party crafts and photos with Santa. Updated flyer referring to photo with St. Nicholas.

Given the picture on the flyer, I contacted organizer Rachelle Carmony to get a sense of what “St Nicholas” the family was expecting to look like. He explained that Santa would appear in a vintage-style robe. In the play, he would read a story to children explaining his origins as St. Nicholas.

Approximately. The 15 minute reading (with the image projected on the screen) will take place at 11:30 am. The party is scheduled to continue until 13:00.

All celebrations took place in Parish Hall at 20 Boston Road.
