Glory of Christmas and crutches

Just in time for the holidays! Your Daytripping Mom here tweaked her knee while dancing at a company party last Saturday night. I am on crutches and waiting to find out from my ortho if I will need surgery. Let me just say that I do not intend on letting this slow me down. I still plan to bring you more fun places to visit during the holidays.

I may get around a little slower, but I am actually looking forward to getting some use out of the temporary handicap parking placard that I was issued. It will come in handy during the next two weeks!

If you get the chance, be sure to take the family to see The Glory Of Christmas is performed annually and is currently running through January 5, 2008 at the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove. This is a live nativity musical with prerecorded orchestration by the London Symphony Orchestra.

Live animals take the stage and angels fly as high as 80 feet and travel as fast as 25 miles per hour.

The Glory of Christmas has been performing every year since 1981 at the Crystal Cathedral, an iconic landmark in Garden Grove, California. 714-54GLORY. Tickets are $20-55. Visit the Web site for ticket information. Performance are up to 3 times a day beginning at 4:30 on the weekends. Some dates might already be sold out.
