‘Fro Me to You – Christmas Pageant

I bring to you week 3 of my ‘Fro Me to You Christmas spectacle spectacular.

Once again brought to you by our dear Texas hostess with the mostest, Kristen over at We are THAT family.


This week’s photo comes from 1976. Which might make you think of star-spangled celebrations in honor of our great country’s 200th birthday celebration. Of course, it might not remind you of anything since you weren't born......sheesh, don't rub it in either.

It’s ok to think those things; however, from here on out, I want you to think of the Greek Orthodox Christmas Pageant of ‘76.

Think of children dressed as angels (who ought not be), shepherds, and lambs sitting on a stage covered with hay. And said children surrounding the precious baby Jesus in a manger!

Now close your eyes and go to your happy place and envision such beauty.

Are you there?? Can you see the sweet children dressed as in the day of Jesus?? Do you see the lambs too??

Did you envision something like this:


I thought so.



OHHHH, you want to know which one is me….. seriously, you can’t find me without help.

OK, fine.


Yes, yes….there I am in my angelic glory, the rosy cheeked one 2nd from the left. The cute little blonde in the middle would be my little sister! I think my twin sister is peeking at the right middle edge of photo.

So, if somebody asks you what the first thing that comes to your mind when they say 1976….don’t say “bicentennial”. The answer should be “the best little Greek Christmas pageant ever”.

To see many more photos that have never graced the pages of any scrapbook, click here to head over the Kristen’s site. If you’re new here, dig out those photos and join in the Thursday fun!

Merry Christmas ‘Fro Me to You!!!!

Oh what an angel! You are all beautiful.

Leigh said...

How precious a photo! I picked you right out! Seriously you should send this as a Christmas card!

Best little greek pageant ever... HA! Excellent post! And since my kids adore that book I appreciate the reference so much.

You were such a cute little angel!


Nicolette said...

Boy, that was also the "itchiest" Christmas pageant ever with all that hay!!

Kasey Hunt said...

You looked so cute. What a great memory to have.

Heather said...

This actually looks pretty much like what I envisioned :) You were a darling angel.

The Source said...

Awwww...did you have a little halo made of tinsel?? Cause that's what we always wore at our school pageants. Except the year my little sister was Mary...and pouted her lines out through a scowl.

The flash-back Christmas photos were terrific!

That is cute!!! I think we get to be exempt from shame when we're that young.

And THAT's just how I imagined a little Greek pageant to be! Thanks for fulfilling that dream :D

Jerralea said...

Yup, that pageant is just what I envisioned! Totally adorable.

That really was very sweet - I love the kid photos - we were all so perfect back then ;)

Wow - the Greeks always know how to dress! (And I say that because my Greek BIL's Christmas pageant pictures all look that fancy, too.) In mine, I'm wearing a white turtleneck and pants. No wings. No halo. Nothing. Yet I distinctly remember them assigning me the role of angel. Hmmm...

Muthering Heights said...

You look like such a sweet angel!

Valarie Lea said...

First, I was three in 1976. :)

Second I picked you out before you told me. I always got to be a shepard or the lamb. :[ said...

That wa funny! You did have cute little rosey cheeks!
