Getting Close

One of our sisters organized an outing last Sunday night to view Christmas house decorations in our nearby neighborhoods. It was a great success, topped off by hot chocolate upon return.

We are in the very middle of the O Antiphons, yet getting closer and closer to the celebratory weekend every second. Here are a few Christmas scenes that you may not see even if you visit us because most of them are in offices or the private hallways of our living areas. I'll post more after official decorating begins tomorrow night.

Our Community Room tree before decorating. Is that someone peeking around from the back...maybe looking for an early present?

Here is a delightful 2-minute Christmas video from the small Yupiq Eskimo Village of Quinhagak, Alaska. Much to the villagers' shock, over a half million people have viewed it.
