Just want to wish a Merry Christmas to my one or two regular readers and anyone else who happens along today.
I'm going to leave you with the quotation from Luke that Linus performs on the stage during the most excellent Charlie Brown Christmas cartoon:
And in that region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear.
And the angel said to them, "Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people; for to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
"And this will be a sign for you; you will find a babe wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger." And suddenly there was with the angle a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace, good will among men."
