dinner dance

The first annual All Saints parish Christmas party was held tonight in the gym at Knoxville Catholic High School. The place was packed. My wife heard that nearly 900 people had RSVP-ed. Over 700 of them showed up. The parish provided the meat, the beer and the wine (and the soft drinks). The parishioners brought salads, side dishes and desserts. After the party, the excess was taken to Samaritan Place. I had my first ever taste of Strawberry Pretzel Salad and really loved it. There weren't any leftovers of that. Before dinner, Fr. Michael Woods grabbed the microphone to make an announcement and to say grace. As he tried to get everyone to be quiet, he quipped that this was why they didn't serve wine at the beginning of Mass.

At the other end of the building, the drama students were putting on a play in the Megan Birkel Performing Arts Center. As we left the party, we saw a car in the high school parking lot with something written on the windows. My wife pointed out that teenagers are really getting carried away with their text messaging nowadays.

Mmmm...Strawberry Pretzel Salad. If all salads were like that, I could eat salad all day long.
