On the Second Day of Christmas

Yes! Celebrate!

Yes! Celebrate!

Not Celebrate?

Not celebrate?Your burden is too great to bear?
Your loneliness is intensified during this Christmas season?
Your tears have no end?
Not celebrate?
You should lead the celebration!
You should run through the streets to ring the bells and sing the loudest!
You should ling the tinsel on the tree,
and open your house to your neighbor,
and call them to dance!
For it is you avove all others who know the joy of Advent
It is unto you that a Savior is born this day.
One who comes to lift your burden from your shoulders,
One who comes to wipe the tears from your eyes.
You are not alone,
for He is born this day to you.

– Ann Weems

The Christmas Star in the night sky, the shining of the Christmas light in the night – all this is the sign that light breaks into darkness. Though we see about us the darkness of unrest, of family discord, of class struggle, of competitive jealousy and of national hatred, the light shall shine and drive it out. “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them light shined.”
