THE CHRISTMAS CONCERT

My hubby and I had the opportunity to go see The Great American Christmas Show featuring Tony Orlando and his band. It combined a hit list of his oldies but goodies, along with Christmas songs. He stressed during the show that what was missing in most people's Christmas Decorations  was a Nativity. He has lived in Branson, Missouri for over 20 years entertaining audiences there. Popular back in the 1970's , Tony is best known for his song Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree.

What a great show to see! I do agree with him about decorations missing Nativity scenes. Driving around looking at lights here you rarely see anything Jesus related in people's decorations.

It is hard to believe that Branson has been on the entertainment map for over 20 years.
What a thrill to see Tony Orlando and hear the new and OLDIES!

I would have really enjoyed seeing him. I saw him over twenty years ago and it was a great concert.

I haven't been to a Christmas concert in ages, They do put you in the spirit. I always have a nativity set out.

It sounds like it was a good show. I'm familiar with Branson because I used to go there quite often when I lived in Missouri.

Taryterre,
How fun that you got to see Tony Orlando in concert! Yes, I remember the song, Tie A Yellow Ribbon. I think that's true that what's missing in people Christmas d├ęcor is the Nativity scene. I bought one many years ago, and all the people are wearing real clothes with jewels. It's so pretty, and I may post it before Christmas.

Have a merry week.

Love,
