Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
We are counting down to Christmas, and I realized myself that I am writing our episode for Christmasday, so I have mis-counted myself, but ... well ... no problem ... I just write a new episode of this temporarely feature. This day I have chosen for the story of Christmas, not the story about Mr. Scrooge (in my opinion one of the best Christmas' stories), but that real story from the Holy Scripture as described in the New Testament in the book of the Evangelist Luke chapter 2 verses 4 to 20 (NIV).
The Birth of Jesus (Luke 2: 4-20; NIV)
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.
17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
