Tonight we had a guiding light to lead us onwards in our journey towards Christmas.
Carrie had created a beautiful coloured lantern which hung in front of hut 341 to draw people along the seafront to our penultimate hut. The lantern depicted different forms of travel in tissue paper mosaic making it look almost like a stained glass lamp hanging on the promenade.
It was a very cold and windy night but like true travellers we had brought everything we needed to keep the cold out. Not only mulled wine and mince pies but a wood burning brazier helped us to hold back the elements and enjoy the candlelit scene.
Inside the hut there was a silhouette of Bethlehem with a very cute little Joseph and donkey made out of wool.
This is our last regular hut as tomorrow we are trying something a little different. We hope to break the world record for a live nativity and so want as many people as possible to come to hut 395 dressed as their favourite nativity character. We hope to see hundreds of shepherds, wise men, angels and maybe even a few Mary and Josephs. The mayor is coming to help us keep count and we will also be making the draw for the winner of the Choccywoccydoodah cake. So come to hut 395 by Hove Lagoon to celebrate Christmas Eve in Beach Hut Advent style!
