Alrighty then! Here are a lot of awesome events for this weekend including alot of theatre, alot of lights, a lot lot lot of theatre, and a surprising amount of sports. (I understand the Panthers and Seahawks may be playing on either snowshoes or ice skates in Charlotte.)

The one I want to mention is Christmas on Main at First Baptist in Spartanburg. The pastor, Rev. Don Wilton, has placed thier Christmas program in the middle of the afternoon — 3 pm — on 3 consecutive Sundays so the community can fit in in their schedules. My parents and I attended Carols at Candlelight this past Sunday and enjoyed it immensely. (Four grand pianos, three electronic keyboards, and a pipe organ.)
