Liturgical Mystery #10: The Christmas Cantata
Signed by the author on the title page. Usually in St. Germaine, North Carolina, the three weeks before Christmas are marked by an increase in good feelings. Not this year. The whole town is crabby. Noylene's new personal Christian astrologer blames it on the convergence of Pluto and the third moon of Jupiter. Pete Moss thinks it might have something to do with increasing levels of positive ion bombardment from outer space. (Also included in Pete's theory are sunspots, a hole in the ozone layer, the federal deficit, CNN election coverage, armadillo migration, and the cancellation of two long-running soap operas.) When a long-lost cantata is found in the basement of the courthouse, a Christmas Eve performance is the order of the day. What happens next is anyone's guess.
