As Christmas Approaches:

As Christmas Approaches: All about the White Christmas

As I sat on a sunny bank,
On Christmas Day in the morning,
I spied three ships come sailing by.

Much awaited, to be sure almost a full year. And here come the day for total rest and ecstasy or is it what we pine at Jesuit.

Christmas--- annual Christian holiday commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ December 25, and now we like to celebrate on the evening of December 24. The official Christmas season, popularly known as either Christmastide or the Twelve Days of Christmas, extends from the anniversary of Christ’s birth on December 25 to the feast of Epiphany on January 6.

Santa Claus
Traditionally, Saint Nicholas was depicted as a tall, dignified ecclesiastical figure riding a white horse. The distinctive iconography of the North American Santa Claus—a chubby, bespectacled elf dressed in red—took shape over the course of the 19th century.
May this day Santa read this.

This is the month, and this the happy morn
Wherein the Son of heaven's eternal King,
Of wedded maid, and virgin mother born,
Our great redemption from above did bring;
For so the holy sages once did sing,
That he our deadly forfeit should release,
And with his Father work us a perpetual peace.
John Milton (1608 - 1674)
