Christmas daybook, 1: and she gave birth to her firstborn son

My Christmas daybook for these 12 days of celebrating. Join me, won't you? 

Opening prayer: 
Give me Lord, a spirit of celebration, so I can revel in the magnitude of your joy 
and your renewal of the human heart. Amen. (Emilie Griffin)

O God, you make us glad by the yearly festival of the birth of your only Son Jesus Christ: Grant that we, who joyfully receive him as our Redeemer, may with sure confidence behold him when he comes to be our Judge; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. (source)
