The Christmas Eve services tomorrow are going to be amazing...we are doing some stuff we've never attempted. I think we are taking our best Christmas Eve services ever and bumping it up about 10 notches. I'm serious!
We started with 15,600 tickets to distributed...and have given out more than 14,000 so far. It is interesting that our first service to "sell-out" was 3:30pm, followed by 5:00pm.
Through years of experience, we have discovered a 30% no-show rate when we offer free tickets. Therefore, we really only have 12,000 seats available. Since we've already distributed 2,000 more tickets than we have seats available--hopefully our historical no-show rate won't backfire. If it does, won't that be fun!
