All is Calm, All is Bright

Silent Night was one of my favorite Christmas carols when I was little, and Christmas Eve has always been my favorite part of Christmas.  All the stress and running around that is often associated with the Holidays seems to mellow when the sun goes down on Christmas Eve.  "All is calm, all is bright..."  Take a deep breath, slow down, and enjoy this moment.
Growing up, my family always went to a candlelight Christmas Eve service.  It was beautiful to see the candle's flames flickering around the room.  I'm sure I also enjoyed it because there are very few times as a child that you are allowed to "play with fire".  If you would like to attend a service, at 6 and 10pm there is the Festival Holy Eucharist at the National Cathedral.  If you don't want to get out, but you would like to see the service, there will be a live webcast on their website.  Happy Christmas Eve!
