“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”

Christmastime is always the most Christmassy when we’re doing something as a family.

Especially if it’s something about Jesus.

But some people don’t have any family. Christmas must be kind of sad for them.

Maybe we could invite somebody like that to share our Christmas.

But then it wouldn’t be just our family anymore. It wouldn’t be the same.

Why don’t we try it?

Well, OK …

Christmas Eve

It really isn’t the same. It’s better!
