Christmas Eve is a big deal to me. The rebirth after the long night. My spouse and I were both raised Christian; both of us lost our faith. But even though I no longer believe that faith in Jesus will win me a place in heaven, Christmas Eve feels expectant, with the darkness of the season and the lovely colors of the pretty lights. The rebirth of the sun, and the birth of a child -- every birth is sacred.

I’m going inside, inside the holiday, won’t be back for a while. Here’s hoping for the joys of the darkness and the light of the season.
