Thanks Trishlee how true how true. I would like to find a church that does the walk thru Bethlehem in the Lake Norman area that soiunds like a fun event but the one In Matthews is a little far out for me to attend.

With over 500 churches in the Charlotte area alone Im sure anyone can find something that suits their taste to bring the true meaning of Christmas back!!

One of the Baptist Churches - I believe it's Park Road Baptist right across from Park Road Shopping Center - does a living Nativity tableau every Christmas Eve. You just drive up and watch from your car. It's great!
