The moments that matter in a Nelson Christmas

The Christmas season is truly the most wonderful time of the year in Nelson.

The Christmas season is truly the most wonderful time of the year in Nelson. A time when the community can come together to celebrate what we have and enjoy the talents of our residents.

It’s a busy time of year, but one that requires we slow down to appreciate the little things. Don’t get too wrapped up in what you need to do to make it a holiday season worth remembering. Instead take time to soak in the moments that will simply bring that special magic to your life.

Earlier this week, the Nelson Community Band put on its annual December showcase called Celebrate the Season which we have featured on today’s front page and on Page 2. The First Baptist Church came alive with the wonderful talents of the folks who have a passion for music. Making the evening even more special was the smiling faces and sweet voices of the youth choir special guests that warmed the cockles of all those in attendance.

From craft faires to school concerts to company parties, there will be many opportunities in the next 11 days to bolster your Christmas spirit. One of those events takes place tonight with the 13th annual Christmas on Baker celebration put on by local churches. Celebrating the true reason for the season, there will be music and memories a plenty.

Don’t miss the moment. Get out there and celebrate with friends, neighbours and even strangers. It’s a gift of rural life that those in the big city can only imagine.

All we’re missing now is a deep blanket of snow that will make Nelson the true storybook Christmas town.
