Celebrations and festivals

BRATTLEBORO Vermont Christmas Pageant: Several years ago, youth of the parish expressed a wish to make the pageant more personal to them as Vermonters; thus the church has seen different twists each year--from the entrance of a live goat to the delivery of apple pie and gilfeather turnips; from gifts of cheddar cheese and maple syrup to flocks of free-range angels. All who gather this year will enjoy even more surprises. The pageant boasts a host of favorite carols of the season and concludes with celebration of the Eucharist. 4 p.m. Free. St. Michaels Episcopal Church, Putney Rd. and Bradley Ave. Information: 802-254-6048.


BRATTLEBORO Christmas Eve Pub Sing: Anyone can lead songs, request songs, join in the choruses, or simply come listen. Songs from diverse seasonal traditions are welcome, as are songs from memory with familiar words and/or easily-learned choruses. 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. Free. McNeills Brewery, 90 Elliot St. Information: 802-254-2553; Click for more info on Web in new window.
