Christmas Eve... My Favorite Day/Night Of The Year

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

 

Christmas Eve day is here. In a few hours it will be Christmas Eve night... my "personal" Christmas always begins on Christmas Eve. When I think about Christmas Eve it's always against the backdrop of a night that exemplifies all that is calm, all that is bright, all that is holy. The calm and holiness of Christmas Eve never disappoint and never fail to restore my spirit. Christmas Eve is my favorite day of the year and there is no night in the year that I look forward to more than Christmas Eve night.

 

As Bess Streeter Aldrich said....

"Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart...filled it, too, with melody that would last forever."

 

 

 

 

"Christmas Eve ought to be a very joyful evening to us in all its associations, in all the truths which it naturally brings to the soul.... A man's soul is to be as the heavens were on the night when the shepherds looked up and saw them full of angels as well as stars."

.... Henry Ward Beecher

 

 

 

From my home to yours, wishing you a Christmas Eve that is joyful, calm and bright.

 

And as Ada V Hendricks said, may Christmas Eve usher in....

"... the gladness of Christmas which is hope; the spirit of Christmas which is peace; the heart of Christmas which is love."

It's a good night and mainly because of no presents and just eating and drinking with family.

Beth Atalay hi Beth... Merry Christmas! Glad you get to spend a lovely evening with your son. We actually went out to dinner with a group of very special friends (as we have no family here in Charlotte) and then to one of their homes for dessert and games... and it was a lovely evening.
