As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, it is also a time to reminisce of other great Christmasy things, like hallucinations on Christmas Eve. The Nutcracker is one of the craziest ideas of a Christmas tradition, but since the LDS Temple Hill Events sponsors a free Nutcracker, we figured it was a good time to test out this long running Christmas tradition.
Catherine joined us (of course, we can't do anything without our sister wife), and we spent a very memorable night watching ballerinas, toy soldiers, and rats dance around on stage.
I don't think we're going to keep this as a tradition. I'm not sure the ballet is really my favorite thing in the world, but it was fun to experience at least once. The temple also puts great lights around the grounds for everyone to enjoy. We loved going up and enjoying a night at the ballet for Christmas.
