Christmas Present

Despite even what many believers think, it’s still Christmas—until January 11, the feast of the Baptism of the Lord. Mentioning this to a cashier in a store, I added, “So we can still party!” She answered, “We’ll celebrate. Let the kids party.” Somebody’s tired.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this week’s Pauline blogger was unable to submit an article in time, so if you’ll bear with an older post from Pauline Faithways, a kind of “Ghost from Christmas Past,” you’ll find it at http://paulinefaithways.blogspot.com/2011/12/christmas-present.html. The video I included has been removed by YouTube, so you can find another version of this “divine work of art,” as one commenter put it, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nn5ken3RJBo, courtesy of the Nordic Chamber Choir.

Christmas blessings all throughout 2015!
