What's Up the Street For Next Week?

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Angels We Have Heard on High sing Joy To The World. In the Little Town of Bethlehem on a ‘not so’ Silent Night it was The Birthday of a King. One Small Child was born and placed Away in a Manger. What Child is This? Emmanuel. The Christ.


Far beyond the Jingle Bells or the times we Deck The Halls. More precious than the news that Santa Claus is Coming to Town with his Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. With greater splendor than that O Christmas Tree or a White Christmas is the wonder of the news that The Herald Angels Sing.


On this Holy Night, we celebrate an Infant Holy, Infant Lowly. Run to adore him. O Come, All Ye Faithful. His love is amazing! Isn’t He beautiful? We can celebrate because Love Has Come.

Sing We Now of Christmas – the true reason for the season (and any other): Jesus.

Christ is born.


In celebration of the greatest gift of all being given, we have a gift for Apple Blossom – winner of Finding Christmas. Send your snail mail to pepperbasham(at)yahoo(dot)com.

End 2010 with some more tradtions, thoughts, memories, and stories about Christmas from the Alley Cats here at The Writers Alley. We'll be celebrating Christmas past, present, and yet to come during this last week of 2010.

We wish you a very Merry Christmas.

May God bless us – every one.

I'll end with a poem by Christina Rosetti

What Can I Give Him?

What can I give him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I give him a lamb.
If I were a wiseman, I'd do my part.
What can I give him? I'll give him my heart.

Hey Case,
Next weekend we'll have to have a 2010 countdown of events. Like some highlights of The Alley in 2010. What do you think?

Merry Christmas!!
