Annual Live Nativity on December 12th 6-8 pm

 One way to enjoy the holiday traditions is to take some time out and treat yourself to an evening in the little hamlet of Glen Ellen where over there on O’Donnell Lane, behind the Post Office, stands the stately and decorated, 121 year old Glen Ellen Community Church and with it, a menagerie of camels, sheep, goats, a donkey; a 1st century-costumed couple looking for a place to rest, some Wise Men from the East, and a couple of lowly shepherds herding their flock - all depicting the essence of that first Christmas as told from the pages of the Holy Book itself. The straw smells fresh, the hot apple cider is deliciously warm, and Christmas carols will be sung as a blessing to all in attendance. This entire page echoing down from generations past, comes in the form of a gift to the community as Glen Ellen Community Church performs its annual “Live Nativity” Saturday night December 12th with encores continuing every 30 minutes or so beginning at 6:00 pm. In between the telling of the First Christmas Story, friends and guests can visit with the manger animals, enjoy a cookie or two, and meet other seekers of holiday merriment and meaning.
