Thanks to a snow-free Christmas season, we had the best turnout ever for our holiday performances. The head count for our in-between Christmas and New Year show was 70! Practically a full house.
This show had a lot of well-known Christmas carols in it and it was fun when we heard people singing along and really getting into the spirit of things.
My favorite kid comment came after one of the shows when we were about ready to wrap up our audience meet-and-greet time.
"The puppets need to rest now," I said.
"Do they have little beds?" asked a little boy. (He may have remembered the stationary kids who were snug in their beds during the "Twas the Night Before Christmas" segment.)
Also, one mom reported that her child asked what a pipe was. "The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, and the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath." (Maybe someday they won't even know what smoking is. We can only hope.)
