Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting Light

How can you not love the Christmas nativity story? Is there a more profoundly radical idea than that the Divine will manifest itself among the most humble in society? Even today that idea should shake us to our core. The nativity story, with its angels, shepherds and wise men, has something beautiful for everyone. Plus the Great Mother in an undercover role!

I'm with you. I love the whole Christian mythic cycle, actually. When I consider it poetry instead of literal, it holds as much meaning for me as any Celtic or Greek myth.
