Twas the Night Before Christmas...

'Twas the night before Christmas when all through the townhouse
not a creature was stirring except for dad and his spouse,
the stockings were hung along the banister with care
in hopes that St Nicholas would a second time come there
The children were snoring all warm in their beds
while visions of new cars and Breyers danced in their heads
with mom wrapping presents & dad making cabbage rolls
it would be long before they could take a dreamland stroll

...perhaps next year, I'll finish this silly poem, but for now, we are off to the Divine Liturgy to celebrate the Nativity of our Lord

Rejoice, O Bethlehem! And make ready, O Ephrata! Behold, the Virgin is on her way to give birth to the Great Shepherd she carries in her womb. The God-bearing forefathers will rejoice at his sight, and, together with the shepherds, they will glorify Him in the Virgin's arms.
Troparion of the Preparation for Christmas
