Christmas in Canoe Cove

It's that time of year again.  December here we come.  If you haven't received your Canoe Cove newsletter or you live outside the Cove please take note and mark your calendars!!


The annual Christmas Concert (songs, Santa and Mrs. McGillicuddy!) takes place at the old schoolhouse on Friday, December 14 at 7 pm.  This annual event is put on by the Canoe Cove Women's Institute and is free for the community.  Get there early for a good seat as it's always a packed house.


Coming back for a second year is the Living Nativity.  Jenkins farm is once again playing host to Mary, Joseph, Kings, Shepherds, angels and carolers, not to mention showcasing an impressive array of donkeys, cows, alpacas, sheep and goats.

And LIGHTS, lots and lots of LIGHTS.

So come one and come all on Saturday or Sunday evening, from 5:30 - 8:30 pm, on December 1 & 2 or 8 & 9.

All donations from the nativity go to the Upper Room Food Bank and the Canoe Cove Community Association which maintains the old Schoolhouse.

Yours truly and dear sweet Jody have been hookwinked I mean happily volunteered to play the parts of Mary and Joseph on December 2.  So it's also your chance to check out our acting chops.  Jody says eat your heart out Daniel Day Lewis.

  2. Tonight is the Christmas light up in our little town, of course the weather isn't cooperating....

    But still it's a beautiful time of year.

    1. Jen, I have to admit I just love this time of year. The Christmas rush hasn't set in yet but the lights are going up, the weather has gotten crispy but not terrible. Just utterly charming.

    1. Janet, initially I was supposed to be choir but they were desperate to find a couple for Mary and Joseph. How could I say no? :)
