Our Christmas Eve Service with Lessons and Carols will be held at 7 pm on December 24. All are invited to attend.

Nowell Sing We Clear
The Monadnock Folklore Society presents Nowell Sing We Clear on Friday, December 9, at 8 pm at the Dublin Community Church. Admission is $15/$12 (senior, youth & advance internet sales).
This will be the 37th touring season of Nowell Sing We Clear with songs drawn mostly from English-language folk traditions, that tell both a version of the events and characters involved in the Christmas story and detail the customs that make up the 12 days following the return of the light at the winter solstice.
While much of the singing is unaccompanied, the pageant is also stamped with the energetic dance band sound of fiddle, button accordion, electric piano, drums, and concertina. The audience will be supplied with songsheets and encouraged to sing along. Please visit www.monadnockfolk.org for details.
Dublin’s Annual Holiday Night: December 2
For Dublin’s annual Holiday Night of Tree Lighting, Food, Community Sing, & Santa, we will all gather around the Christmas tree Dec. 2 at 6:30 pm in the parking lot between the Fire Station and Yankee Publishing. We will sing a few songs and then move to the back of the Yankee parking lot for a bonfire.
The Advocate is again handing out songsheets and singers from local churches and schools are invited to share their musical talent in these beloved carols.
Hot chocolate and Christmas cookies will be served and marshmallows for roasting will be circulated. Santa Claus is making Dublin his first stop of the season.
So bundle up the kids, invite your neighbors, grab flashlights and gloves, and dress warmly.
Join us in Dublin village and help usher in the holiday season.
