its the most wonderful time of the year

It's not about the large quantity of chocolate I have consumed.

It's not about the the bright lights throughout the neighborhoods.

It's not about the cookies, biscotti, pumpkin spice lattes, or mocha mint lattes.

It's not about the Christmas music blaring in the stores.

It's not even about the presents under the tree. Afterall, next year we will probably forget what presents we opened today.

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ, the Savior is born
Christ, the Savior is born

It's about our Savior, who came to earth, as a baby. It's about the Light of the world. It's about Jesus, the babe who was placed in a manger. Christmastime is about celebrating the gift that will be eternal.

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

Son of God! Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty Who was and is and is to come!
