We're spending Christmas in New Jersey with my parents for the first time in 6 years. This wasn't supposed to be a working holiday, but they asked me to sit in with the band at the 8:00 Christmas Eve service, and I couldn't resist. I'm happiest when I'm contributing and helping in some way. My wife thinks I'm crazy, but I'd rather participate by making it happen than participate as a spectator in the congregation. I took these two pictures of my preferred view of Christmas Eve. I guess it is a little unusual, but regardless of which side you're on, I hope you have a blessed, peaceful, and joyful Christmas. See you at First Night in Saranac Lake!
