merry christmas!

"Thy Nativity, O Christ our God, hath shined upon the world the light of knowledge; for thereby, they that worshipped the stars were taught by a star to worship Thee, the Sun of Righteousness, and to know Thee, the Dayspring from on high. O Lord, glory be to Thee."

"Christ is born!"


"Glorify him!"


Those were the shouted greetings in the wee hours of the morning at our Orthodox Christmas service. The day was ushered in with a Christmas liturgy, followed by a meal to break our month-long meat/dairy/eggs fast...it was a great way to start a holiday full of family get-togethers and gift giving.


Merry Christmas to everyone else celebrating out there!
