Christmas Eve

 Christmas Star © Romolo Tavani |

Mom would light candles and serve sugar cookies and magic bars, those fantastic concoctions of chocolate and coconut and graham cracker crumbs and sweet condensed milk, and Dad would break out the Bible and read the beginning of Luke 2.

You know the story — from “In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world” to the shepherds going back to their flocks and talking about everything they had just seen and heard.

May the joy that the old physician wrote about be with you this blessed season.
