In my opinion, this show is the best Christmas program on the planet. I don’t know of anyone who does it better. It’s not my home church, but it is our family’s annual tradition to attend “The Gift of Christmas” at Prestonwood Church in Plano. There are over 500 performers with a live nativity that includes camels, llamas, peacocks, sheep, and zebras. They have flying angels, drummers that are suspended from the ceiling illuminated with LED lights, choral music that is the best I have ever heard in a live performance, ballerinas, professional dancers, phenomenal soloists, a live orchestra, and so much more. Thirteen shows. Over 70,000 people see this show live each year. If you missed out on getting tickets this year, you can sign up for their email list to get notified of the date and time that tickets go on sale next fall. You will want to set an alarm on your phone when you get that email mid-summer. Because if you miss buying tickets the morning that they go on sale in the fall, you may not get tickets for a weekend show.

Video and photography is allowed at their performances. The best I had on me at the time was my iPhone, but I think you will appreciate the clips. 

Here are some photos from the show. My iPhone doesn’t do the show justice. But I wanted to give you a glimpse into this majestic Christmas performance.
