  13. smuttysteff says:

    In my old age, I don’t get out to the stage productions much anymore and miss it. As a kid, it wasn’t Christmas until we saw a Christmas play or pantomime. Something about the audience all primed for the good of the season together, and the feeling that brings with it. It’s nice.

    I’d love to be entered into the draw. Thanks, Rebecca!
