Merry Christmas!

Manger scene at my mother’s house. Note the two Paraguayan coconut flowers lying at the floor. They give a pleasant smell. Another detail: Baby Jesus lies in a hammock, as per traditional Paraguayan customs.

Merry Christmas! I hope you can have a great Christmas Eve with your loved ones, a time full of joy and praise for the wonderful gift of a God who dwelt among us, the Word made flesh (John 1:14).

As customary, we usually receive Christmas Day by awaiting midnight with a big family dinner. As midnight reaches, some folks like to blow some firecrackers (4th of July pale in comparison to Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve here) and we exchange congratulations and, sometime, Christmas presents.

May God bless you. Thanks for reading this blog in 2018, and here’s to the best of time in the next year.
