PETERSHAM — Rini Kilcoyne will present, “I Still Believe in Santa Claus” on Sunday, Dec. 15 at 10:30 a.m. at the Petersham Unitarian Church, across from the Town Common. The presentation will include a secular Christmas sing-along. All are welcome to attend.

According to Kilcoyne, “The Sermon will be looking at the historical connection between our image of Santa Claus, and our retail economy in America, and how the two have always been inextricably tied together. While we will not neglect the ‘reason for the season,’ I will also speak of how parents make sure each Christmas that Santa Claus exists, just by filling stockings and attributing gifts that they bought to Santa instead. We will celebrate the fun, good cheer, generosity, and the entire creative spectacle of the Christmas Season.”

Rehearsals and solo selections will be held at the Davis Memorial building in back of the church at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 12 and Saturday, Dec. 14.
