Recently, actor Chris Hemsworth read the Christmas Story from the Gospel of Luke at Disneyland’s annual Candlelight Ceremony.
As Fairthwire.com reports, although Disney has been accused of abandoning their family values in more recent times, this annual Christmas ceremony is a testament to the enduring magic of the Christmas Story, even for a secular company.
Disney’s Candlelight Christmas has been a tradition since the 1950’s when the park first opened, and involves singing of classic Christmas carols, a reading of the Christmas Story, and beautiful Christmas decorations, including a “living” Christmas tree.
This year, Chris Hemsworth was a special guest at the ceremony and took on the role of reading the Christmas Story from the Gospel of Luke.
In his deep voice, the “Thor” actor read portions of the Christmas Story which were interspersed with Christmas music from a choir, comprised of people formed into the shape of a Christmas tree.
