The Christmas pageant – as performed by Sunday school children – is a staple of churches throughout the country – and also here in Menlo Park. It was important for this group of angels to “be heard on high” – hence the outstretched hands. They had gathered around Mary and Joseph with a real baby at Trinity Church.
For those people who drive up and down Middle Avenue, comes another cheery sign of Christmas, which graces the front yard of a Spanish style home. Merry Cactus to all – and to all a good night – with lots of glad tidings and peace thrown in for good measure!
