Directions: From Highway 1, just north of the Iron Workers Memorial Bridge, if you are westbound take Exit 22B to Mt. Seymour Parkway (you’ll pass behind Superstore). If eastbound on Highway 1, at the bottom of “the Cut” (long hill down to the bridge) take Exit 22, also to Mt. Seymour Parkway and pass behind Superstore onto the Parkway. Continue travelling east past the intersections of Riverside, Berkley and Lytton (there’s a Chevron gas station on the left), then start watching for a left-hand turning lane to Northlands Drive. Turn left and follow Northlands as it makes a turn to the left and becomes Larkhall Crescent. McCartney Creek Park fields and tennis court are on your left. Drive up the hill – you’ll be looking at the house (1917) as you drive up – it’s a grey/green house with stone retaining walls and steps, on the left-side of Larkhall. We’ll put the Christmas lights on. Park on our driveway and on the street.

Note.  If as you are driving along Mt. Seymour Parkway you come to Parkgate Village shopping centre (Safeway, etc.) on your left – you have gone too far.  Do a U-turn and go back until you see Northlands Dr on your right.

Though people can view their neighbour’s music/lyrics in the circle, those of you who still have your music and would like to bring it, we will be singing the following songs:

  • All the Stars Shone Down
  • Born of a Star
  • Be Ye Lamps Unto Ourselves
  • December’s Keep
  • Holy Angels
  • La Loo La Low
  • Mary’s Lullabye
  • Song to Mary (music and large font lyrics are available)
  • Star of Wonder
  • Christmas Carols

and, if there is time:

  • Mary Did You Know
  • Night of Silence
  • Work of Christmas

For those of you who we will not see on December 2, wishing you all a blessed and sacred holiday season, celebrating the return of light to our world with our friends, families and loved ones. May your songs continue to illuminate the presence and essence of this beautiful season.

Wishing all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year – and this includes all other ways of sending loving greetings at this time of year.
