An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."Luke 2:9-14
Merry Christmas everyone. If anyone's looking for me, I'll be looking for my tool kit for "some assembly required" and digging through the closet for batteries. Hug your kids, endure whatever "family" obligations you might have today, down a few extra cold adult beverages if you'd like, and keep in mind the reason we celebrate today: His birth.
That is all.
