WNW Christmas Party 2011
So last night was our last Wednesday Night Worship of the year and so we had our youth Christmas party. We began the night with a competitive Bible scavenger hunt where students had to answer questions by finding the scripture reference. All of the questions were related to the birth of Jesus, but some were details that aren't thought of much, like "Who was the step-grandfather of Jesus?", who by the way was named Jacob and we know nothing about. After that we sang a few songs. The first was Happy Birthday to Lauren who turned 16. Of course we never sing it normal but have Mitchell do his version. I don't even know how to begin to explain it. Then next I convinced Belinda to join me in singing a funny duet of a parody of "Baby It's Cold Outside". Instead of the original creepy version where the guy is trying to get the girl to stay, this version was like I had been kicked out in the cold because I got her a terrible Christmas gift- a toilet brush. I can't take credit for writing it though- Andy Gullahorn and Jill Phillips do this version which you can watch here. We then had a contest for the best tacky Christmas sweater/outfit. This is always fun because the students make their sweaters and they always turn out great. Hunter won this year with a sweater covered in tinsel and presents. Then we had our gag gift exchange. We drew numbers and went in order selecting gifts. Some of the gag gifts were: set of fake stick-on mustaches, framed lyrics to "Christmas Shoes" song with "WORST SONG EVER" written across it (that was my gift), a tie that played Christmas music, Pepto Bismol, a country cd, a box of corn muffin mix, and many others. My face hurt from laughing during this time. Then before ending the night with cookies and snacks, some students had a gag gift for me- a huge box. When I opened it, there was another box, and another box, and another- all wrapped and taped together with duct tape. So after what seemed like 20 minutes I get to the center which was a Casting Crowns CD (inside joke here) signed by some of the students. We had a great time of fellowship and a great way to end the year.
