‘Christmas in the Barn’ Continues Strong Holiday Tradition [VIDEO]

 

COLD SPRING — The sounds Christmas carols echo through the rafters as people braved the cold to attend the 7th Annual “Christmas in the Barn” performance.

Put on by the Peace Lutheran Church in Cold Spring, Amy and Chad Leither have donated their barn to this holiday tradition that Amy says started in a school cafeteria.

“They started meeting in the school cafeteria but they couldn’t meet there on Christmas Eve because there was no one to staff the building,” says Leither.

The church then suggested to move the event to a barn which parishioners have offered to the cause.

The service is a re-enactment of the Christmas story told through the eyes of the characters.

“It’s a simple narration of the story, it’s not the Bible verses but it is talking about the story through Mary and Joseph’s perspectives,” says Leither.

The audience has continued to grow, bringing in over 400 people in the two days of the re-enactment.

Leither says they feel called to do this event every year and that it is a great way for families to discover the true meaning of Christmas.

“It’s just people coming together and be together at Christmas time,” says Leither.

Christmas in the Barn will host another re-enactment on Christmas Eve (tomorrow) starting at 7:00 p.m. The event is located at 26258 County Road 2.

The event is free to attend and hot apple cider will be served.
