Christmas Time Countdown – 14 days til Christmas

Filed under: Christmas time countdown — jenz @ 8:52 pm


As I mentioned last night I went carol singing with the people from church. With this in mind I thought I would make today’s song one that we sang and a New Zealand Christmas song – Te Harinui

I had never been carol singing. I arrived at church and there were heaps of people. Apparently a record turn out. We spilt into 3 groups and each group went to different places. In my group there was probably 15 people. We piled into the cars and headed off to first a rest home. It was a nice rest home. Lovely views and very open plan. Not the way I remember rest homes in Auckland. As the night proceeded we went to about 3 or 4 different homes singing and giving the people whose home we visited a plate of Christmas mince tarts. Most of the people sang along with us. One man and his wife were very dear. The man was brought to tears and his wife went around after our singing kissing us all and thanking us. At the end of the evening we went to one of the men’s houses where everyone from church met and had a yummy Christmasy supper. We also looked at his special room that has just recently been built which houses his model train set. It was an awesome night, full of wonderful singing and great company. I hope to do it again next year.

Luke 2:15

After the angels had left and gone back to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see what the Lord has told us about”



  1. Hi Jen, hope you’re doing ok and the family is well 🙂

    My daughters school concert is Wednesday night. Her teacher is originally from NZ, he’s been in Australia only 3 or 4 years. He taught the kids the “Hakka” and they’ve put school words to the music! My daughter is a natural, i wonder if i have NZ blood in me somewhere? LOL!
