For Unto us a Child is Born 2008

The Adoration of the Magi
Fra Angelico and Fillipo Lippi

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government will be upon his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

To everyone who is celebrating this feast, may I wish you and your families a very Happy and Holy Christmas.

From Handel's Messiah the wonderful chorus, For unto us a child is born.

Robert Shaw and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chamber Chorus

As I kept my fingers crossed, I am (almost) sure the snow could not stop you and your pudding attaining to your friend's home, and her turkey.
Hope you and yours enjoyed not only both, the turkey and the pudding, but some thoroughly lovely days, Mylady.

for unto us snow was delivered...again, and again, and again...but the rain has finally come, and what was almost a meter of snow in the yard has become a mere half meter just 12 hours later...and if we don't wash away, all will soon be well.

hope all is well for you and yours too--and you might want to avoid white water rafting for a few days...unless, of course, that becomes a part of getting around vancouver until the inevitable flooding ends.
