Handel's Messiah

Handel's Messiah:The Biblical Message Behind The Musical Masterpiece (NEW FULL LENGTH) (YouTube)

G. F. Handel: Messiah HWV 56 (best performance) (YouTube)

'Messiah': A Holiday Tradition Transcending Time (NPR 12/25/2011) Every Christmas season, classical musicians everywhere carry on the centuries-old custom of performing Handel's Baroque masterpiece. Hear a part of this year's performance by the National Symphony Orchestra.

Christmas or Christmas Day is an annual commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ, celebrated generally on December 25 as a religious and cultural holiday by billions of people around the world. Christmas is a civil holiday in many of the world's nations, and is celebrated by an increasing number of non-Christians, and is an integral part of the Christmas and holiday season.

"Christmas is not really about the celebration of a birth date at all. It is about the celebration of a birth. The fact of the date and the fact of the birth are two different things. The calendrical verification of the feast itself is not really that important...What is important to the understanding of a life-changing moment is that it happened, not necessarily where of when it happened. The message is clear: Christmas is not about marking the actual birth date of Jesus. It is about the Incarnation of the One who became like us in all things but sin (Heb. 4:15) and who humbled Himself "to the point of death-even death on a cross" (Phil. 2:8). Christmas is a pinnacle feast, yes, but it is not the beginning of the liturgical year. It is a memorial, a remembrance, of the birth of Jesus, not really a celebration of the day itself. We remember that because the Jesus of history was born, the Resurrection of the Christ of faith could happen." --- Refer to The Liturgical Year .

In 1843, Charles Dickens wrote the novel A Christmas Carol, that helped revive the 'spirit' of Christmas and seasonal merriment. Its instant popularity played a major role in portraying Christmas as a holiday emphasizing family, goodwill, and compassion. A prominent phrase from the tale, 'Merry Christmas' was popularized following the appearance of the story.

By 1860, fourteen states had adopted Christmas as a legal holiday. In 1870, Christmas was formally declared a United States Federal holiday, signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant. Subsequently, in 1875, Louis Prang introduced the " Christmas card " to Americans. He has been called the "father of the American Christmas card".

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear
and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
to tell someone!
