(Makeup) Annual Carol Concert – A Wonderful Show

Written by Zhengqi Xu

Before I went to the Carol Concert, I had now idea it was meant to celebrate Christmas and the band were praising the birthday Jesus the whole time. I do celebrate Christmas, but I’ve never done it the correct way, because it was hard for me, an international student to fully experience the tradition of Christmas. The Carol Concert this afternoon gave me a new feeling about Christmas and finally I felt a sense of real Christmas as a holiday.

As I mentioned in the introduction, during the Annual Carol Meeting, I heard the band sing the songs to praise the greatness of Jesus Christ. I was surprised at the first moment to learn the true meaning of the Carol Concert. Plenty of students came to stand around the audience and started singing the first song, and I was enjoying it when they started and their voices was highly beautiful.

I noticed that the audience were sometimes asked to join the band to sing together. It was an enjoyment when everyone in the hall were singing together and it was just a scene I’ve never seen before. So, it was a pleasure to see everyone smile and we were enjoying to show together.

I could never had a chance like this to watch a concert that everyone get to enjoy themselves before. The Carol Concert was just so beautiful that I could have a better understanding of what Christmas means to people the country.
