Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all on this most holiest of nights, Christmas eve. As we celebrate this holiday with our family and friends, let us pause for a moment and reflect on why this day is so special. Not because we have a day off work; not because it's an excuse to eat drink and be merry; not because we get to think of others as we purchase many gifts for them; and not even because it represents peace and good will to all men. No, the reason for this day is that it is the birthday of the Christ child, Jesus of Nazareth. He who would die for all of our sins so that we might live. Happy birthday Jesus, and God bless us all, every one!
