Every now and then, the advantages of being a blog focused on a small private school in Central Texas become even more apparent. Christmas is one of those times. Instead of having to write a post saying Happy Holidays and skirting around why we actually put up Christmas trees and exchange presents, I can say here, to this audience, that it is because of the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Merry Christmas, everybody!
Merry Christmas, @Baylor family!!! (So proud to be part of a university that can say that unashamedly.) pic.twitter.com/342CtCx81n— Baylor Proud (@BaylorProud) December 25, 2013
I don't expect much of a crowd on the board today for obvious reasons. Those who do come around, feel free to share your favorite Christmas memories, traditions, movies, etc. What makes Christmas special for you and your family? If you are a young parent or adult, what are you doing to make your own traditions?
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes , lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. ~ Luke 2:8-14
