Merry Christmas!

There are plenty of trees on the front lawn waiting to be recycled, but Christmas isn't over yet!  The season of Christmas is twelve days long and ends Thursday (January 6th) when we celebrate Epiphany.  One of my favorite Epiphany traditions is the arrival of the Wise Men - on January 6th the Wise Men from our home nativity scene end their long journey around our house and finally reach the Christ child on the mantle.  Thursday would be a nice day to gather your family, light a candle, and read Matthew 2:1-12, the scriptural account of the Wise Men's visit with Jesus.

For now, here are a few photos from our marvelous Christmas Eve Pageant to remind you of the wonders of the Christmas season.  Enjoy!

  1. You captured some great scenes of a busy night, Leslie! And thanks for the idea for Thursday - I love little ways I can bring atrium home.
