Talented Artists Made These Christmas Masterpieces - Odd Nugget
Once Santa has your gifts ready and is busy delivering, can you finally be naughty without ending up with coal?
That'd be a lot like The Purge in a way - a night of insanity before Santa starts keeping track again.
Maybe that's not exactly how it works...
If anything, the night might be the most important part of all - Jesus was supposedly born at night, right?
The idea of Jesus being born at night is reflected in the fact that Christmas Eve is referred to as Heilige Nacht (Holy Night) in German, Nochebuena (the Good Night) in Spanish and similarly in other expressions of Christmas spirituality.
So it's probably best to stay on your best behavior then too... Drat!
But, enough of all that, here's a heaping helping of Christmas art to brighten up the season!
How was December 25th chosen for Christmas?
The Roman Christian historian Sextus Julius Africanus dated Jesus' conception to March 25 (the same date upon which he held that the world was created), which, after nine months in his mother's womb, would result in a December 25 birth.
Seems reasonable enough.

To my babies, Merry Christmas. I'm sorry if these letters have caught you both by surprise. There is just so much more I have to say. I know you thought I was done giving advice, but I couldn't leave without reiterating a few things in writing. You may not relate to these things now, but someday you will.
Never judge others. You both know good and well how unexpected events can change who a person is. Always keep that in mind. You never know what someone else is experiencing within their own life.
Question everything. Your love, your religion, your passions. If you don't have questions, you'll never find answers.
Be accepting. Of everything. People's differences, their similarities, their choices, their personalities. Sometimes it takes a variety to make a good collection. The same goes for people.
Choose your battles, but don't choose very many.
Keep an open mind it's the only way new things can get in.
And last but not least, not the tiniest bit least. Never regret. Thank you both for giving me the best years of my life. Especially the last one. Love, Mom
How many observe Christ's birthday! How few, His precepts!
