Scenes: Xmas in Sarikei - Silent Night, Holy Night

All you wanted for Xmas was a combined carolling from all churches? Your wish was granted and with a parade around town to boot on 18th Dec 2010 (Saturday).

Sarikei has a big population of Christians. There are at least 5 denominations of Christianity in Sarikei - Methodist (4 branches), Catholic, Anglican, SIB (Borneo Evangelical Church) and Sarawak Full Gospel Church. Any others?

Baby Jesus was seen smiling on a Sarawak pua kumbu in the manger of St Anthony's Catholic Church. Now that's Sarawak creativity.

Merry Xmas!
