Christmas Tid-bits

A few little bits of interest regarding the Great Holy Day and the various peoples who celebrate it:

And from Bethlehem:



                                                    "Christ is Born, Glorify Him!"

And two Presidents weigh in on the Holy Day:

In his Christmas "tweet", Our Glorious Emperor in Washington failed to mention the Birth of Jesus Christ. Hardly surprising for a cut-rate Herod like Mr Obama, and normally would have been unworthy of notice, except that it came into stark relief when compared to the comments of Hassan Rouhani, President of Iran.

The President of Iran said this:

“May Jesus Christ, Prophet of peace & love, bless us all on this day. Wishing Merry #Christmas to those celebrating, esp #Iranian Christians.”

Best wishes for Christmas-time and the upcoming New Year, Aged Parent.

I wonder where the name Christ is in Arabic on the Christmas Card from Bethlehem. Fascinating.
