Tonight my two sisters and I had our annual Sister Christmas outing, something we’ve tried to do every year since our mother died. We’ve been to Christmas plays, concerts, musicals, ballets, and The Rockettes.
This year’s outing was to the Annual Festival of Lessons and Carols at Christ Church Cathedral in downtown Nashville, which is the Cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of Tennessee. This beautiful Victorian Gothic style cathedral was built from 1887-1894.
It was pure heavenly bliss sitting in that cathedral tonight listening to that beautiful pipe organ and the choir sing those glorious carols. I had a serene calm feeling as I felt my body relax and unwind from the hectic hustle and bustle of the Christmas season.
After the Lessons and Carols, we dined at The Old Spaghetti Factory on 2nd Avenue in downtown Nashville. Good food in a good atmosphere. Although we were told there would be a wait time of about an hour, we only had to wait about 35 minutes. And I’ll mention that The Old Spaghetti Factory is always worth the wait!
