Merry Christmoose! Don’t you mean Merry Christmas? Well, yes and no.
The first weekend of December we open the Siloam Missionary Homes Campus, which is a ministry of providing homes for missionaries, up to the general public and call this event “Catch the Spirit of Christmas,” with thousands of lights that makes our 33 acre village come alive with the dazzle and twinkle of Christmas lights, complete with hayrides and trolley rides and much more. A couple of years ago, my son in law was making a Christmas sign out of a red rope light and spelled out the words “Merry Christmas.” The problem was he had more letters than rope, so when he got to the end of “Christmas,” it looked like “Christmos.” So my friend Robby Dilmore, our radio producer with WTRU Radio, was helping me on the trolley, singing and talking to the passengers. As we rounded the corner with microphone is hand he looked up at the sign and said “Merry Christmoose?” Kind of like oops, sorry, but it’s already been said. I quickly replied, “I think that’s Merry Christmas in Vietnamese.” Lol! Every one laughed and it made the night.
So this year I’d like to invite you to come to “Catch the Spirit of Christmas” Friday, December 2 and 3, from 5:30 – 8:00 pm. You can come see Mike’s famous sign and have a Merry Christmoose with us and Robby Dilmore.
