This painting reminded me what a special thing it is to have Christmas on a Sunday. It is, after all, Jesus's birthday celebration, not ours!
This painting is "Christmas Eve" by J. Latham. Is it just me or does it seem like a rare and somewhat foreign thing to associate Christmas Eve with a full church?
I love the lit stained glass windows. I think I'll have stained glass windows put in at my house next time I have $10,000 to spare. I love the sleigh with the excited horse. I do not love the thought of walking kids to church wearing a corset and bustle. I'm going to have a bustle that's built in if I don't stop dreaming of peanut butter balls and fudge. <<sigh>>
