Photos: Christmas Carols in Malibu

Children clamor on Sunday to light the first of four candles to be lit during December’s Keep Christ in Christmas celebrations. 

The Christmas season is upon us, as people gathered for the 50th year of “Keep Christ in Christmas,” a beloved Christmas tradition for families in Malibu and outlying communities. Every Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. throughout the month of December, community churches will host the event, which honors the true meaning of Christmas, Christ’s birth. The celebration includes prayers, stories and singing Christmas Carols, refreshments to follow. All are welcome to join the weekly social on the corner of Webb Way and Pacific Coast Highway. Last Sunday’s host was Pepperdine University Church of Christ.
