    Standard disclaimer for those who’ve never seen Candlelight before and may have glossed over the text to get to the celebrities and prices: when they say Candlelight is a “a re-telling of the Christmas Story,” that very much means Mary & Joseph, the manger, baby Jesus, the wise men, etc.

    If you’re someone who would not enjoy attending a Christmas Eve church service, then Candlelight may not be the best use of your vacation time and dollars. You can always do some youtube research if you’re on the fence.

    Somehow I think $560 for dinner at the Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room, might not be right…
