In the absence of traditional services, parties and concerts, 24 local families and residents of High Town are creating a live advent calendar through December by putting up varied displays in their front windows. They will collectively tell a story of comfort and joy for this strange COVID season.
A new display will appear every day from the 1st to the 24th of December based on a different section or theme from the Christmas Story. Local residents are then invited to embark on mini-pilgrimages to visit each of the windows. At each display there are some simple reflections or activities to help people think about their own lives and what inspiration the story may bring, especially at this challenging time.
The wider community is also getting involved, and people can look out for displays on the exteriors of St Matthew’s Primary School, and St Matthew’s church.
Anyone who wants to join in the fun can find the map, the reflections, some pictures of the windows so far and peoples’ responses on http://www.facebook.com/htadventwindows
