Many people have told me that this has been the busiest pre Christmas season ever. And I agree. I know I have been going like mad since the beginning of October, and hopefully by Christmas I will not be spread out on the couch in total exhaustion.
I hope that most of you have done, or are doing a few artsy things such as attending a concert, a sing-a-long or a play. It lifts the spirits and it reduces stress even for just a little while.
By the time this article appears we will be close to Christmas. But there is still enough time for the Eagle Valley Arts Council to open its doors to tiny tots and their parents for a relaxing afternoon with a free movie: Thomas and Friends Ultimate Christmas.
Many little ones have never seen a big screen movie and the arts council is encouraging parents to bring blankets and pillows so the little ones can make themselves comfortable. There is no concession because the arts council feels parents should be able to bring their own snacks and drinks, thereby making the afternoon without any cost. And no gas expense.
The show lasts about one hour.
Children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent.
Most parents are familiar with Thomas the Train and its famous narrators, George Carlin and others.
The movie will be shown on Sunday, Dec. 18, 2 p.m. at the Red Barn Arts Centre.
Hope to see you there.
Merry Christmas everyone!
