Christmas Eve is Magical


There's something magical about Christmas Eve, at any age, viewed from the right perspective. It is one of my favorite nights of the year. Here is a little moment at my parish, Christmas Eve, 2008. This is a view from the choir loft, as the kids wait before the pageant begins. In the choir loft I can capture a little bit of that magic reflected in the soft lights and anticipation of celebration. My church is 120 years old, quaint and country-like. It's a cozy place to be, and yes, it is a Catholic church. The princess is the seated angel. Big brother is a blue wise man, half in the right side of the picture.

Just stopping by to let you know I linked to you in my 12/26 post, "...Blue Plate Specials." It's a Gen X roundup I do once or twice week. Do you disclose what state you are from? I really love your play list, and you have a great name for a writer.

I'm glad your Christmas Eve was magical, complete with the nativity play!

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.

Fondly,

Loren Christie
