Merry Christmas

Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee,
Whether the summer clothe the general earth

With greenness,

or the redbreast sit and sing

Betwixt the tufts of snow on the bare branch

Of mossy apple-tree,

while the nigh thatch

Smokes in the sun-thaw;

whether the eave-drops fall

Heard only in the trances of the blast,

Or if the secret ministry of frost

Shall hang them up in silent icicles,
Quietly shining to the quiet Moon.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

It is a beauteous evening, calm and free

The holy time is quiet like a nun

Breathless with adoration

William Wordsworth
Above are scenes from December 24, 2007, in Wiesbaden-Naurod, Germany.
The modern style Holy Family was carved by a Palestinian Christian in Bethlehem, one of the original stones, a descendent of an early Christian family and bought by me, a Palestinian-American Christian living in Germany, with roots in Ramallah, Palestine.
