Albert S Reakes
Lanterns burn and bells are ringing.
To the woods the children go,
Picking evergreens and bringing,
Holly boughs with mistletoe.
Twilight comes as day is ending,
Then around the Yule log fire,
Young and old, their voices blending,
Carol in a tuneful choir
To mankind the revelation
Of the light that came to earth,
Joining in the celebration
Of the Savior’s lonely birth.
May the lone, the sad, the stranger
joy and blessedness receive;
come and worship at the manger—
This is the call of Christmas Eve.

I hope you are having a wonderful, long weekend enjoying your family and friends. I am so incredibly happy to be surrounded with family, sad that one of my sisters could not come but happy that the rest of us are together. We are doing all of the things we love to do, bake, eat, shop, go for long walks and bike rides, watch movies, read magazines, and just be together.
I wish you a very Merry Christmas Eve! Have a blessed and happy day!
