Lights, please...

"'And there were in the same country shepherds, abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them! And they were sore afraid ... And the angel said unto them, "Fear not! For, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all my people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ, the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger." And suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of the Heavenly Host praising God, and saying, "Glory to God in the Highest, and on Earth peace, and good will toward men.'
That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown."

It gets me every time.

I'm out of here folks. With the exception of an excrutiatingly personal post that's going up in the next day or so, I'll be taking a break until after the New Year. You've all made this an incredible year for me. I still shake my head in amazement at how many chill friends I made so suddenly because of the decision to hit "Publish Post" on May 17. If you're traveling, be safe. If you're sticking around, be smart. If you're flush with money, be generous. Most of all, find yourself some peace if that's what you need most this holiday.

Merry Christmas,
Brunch Bird

Does not even compare to the haunting emotional touch present in the 'Star Wars Holiday Special'

Yep, the only thing that gets to me more is the end of the saddest movie of all time: "Brian's Song".

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
