12 Days of Christmas - Day #12

Merry Christmas!!!

Wow! It's Christmas morning already! ^.^

Yesterday, I went to the amazing Christmas Eve service at my church and opened stockings and ticket gifts.

Speaking of ticket gifts, now I can tell you who I all had!

I had... Koolestkat!! :D And my brother, Dreadwisp, had me. I gave my sis two books ("Cake Pop Crush" and "The Legend of Zelda Minish Cap") and then I gave a beanie boo named Lindi. (You can look her up. XD) And my brother gave me two Lego sets, a little The Legend of Zelda Toon Link plushie, and a DS game. (Named "Drawn to Life")

Also! In my stocking, I GOT A MEMBERSHIP CARD, YESSSSSSS! (When I got it, I said jokingly, "Hey, now I can be cool again." XD)

Well, let's begin the LAST 12 Days of Christmas verse!

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

LOL, closest thing to 12. XD
 Eleven pipers piping, ten lords a leaping, nine ladies dancing, eight maids a milking, seven geese a laying, six ducks a swimming, (almost) five golden bricks, four calling birds, three French skunks, two pet turtles, and a partridge in a diamond tree!!!!

Well, that ends the song!

And today's special Christmas content is...

The Christmas story!

I really wanted you guys to read the true story of how Christmas came to be. Even if you've heard it before, please. Try reading it again. ^.^

And now! Here is the Christmas story:

Around the time of Elizabeth’s amazing pregnancy and John’s birth, the emperor in Rome, Caesar Augustus, required everyone in the Roman Empire to participate in a massive census—  the first census since Quirinius had become governor of Syria.
 
Each person had to go to his or her ancestral city to be counted.
 
Mary’s fiancĂ© Joseph, from Nazareth in Galilee, had to participate in the census in the same way everyone else did. Because he was a descendant of King David, his ancestral city was Bethlehem, David’s birthplace. Mary, who was now late in her pregnancy that the messenger Gabriel had predicted, accompanied Joseph. While in Bethlehem, she went into labor and gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped the baby in a blanket and laid Him in a feeding trough because the inn had no room for them.
 
Nearby, in the fields outside of Bethlehem, a group of shepherds were guarding their flocks from predators in the darkness of night. Suddenly a messenger of the Lord stood in front of them, and the darkness was replaced by a glorious light—the shining light of God’s glory. They were terrified!
 
Messenger:  Don’t be afraid! Listen! I bring good news, news of great joy, news that will affect all people everywhere. Today, in the city of David, a Liberator has been born for you! He is the promised Anointed One, the Supreme Authority! You will know you have found Him when you see a baby, wrapped in a blanket, lying in a feeding trough.
 
At that moment, the first heavenly messenger was joined by thousands of other messengers—a vast heavenly choir. They praised God.
 
Heavenly Choir: To the highest heights of the universe, glory to God!
    And on earth, peace among all people who bring pleasure to God!
As soon as the heavenly messengers disappeared into heaven, the shepherds were buzzing with conversation.
 
Shepherds: Let’s rush down to Bethlehem right now! Let’s see what’s happening! Let’s experience what the Lord has told us about!
 
So they ran into town, and eventually they found Mary and Joseph and the baby lying in the feeding trough. After they saw the baby, they spread the story of what they had experienced and what had been said to them about this child. Everyone who heard their story couldn’t stop thinking about its meaning.  Mary, too, pondered all of these events, treasuring each memory in her heart.
 
The shepherds returned to their flocks, praising God for all they had seen and heard, and they glorified God for the way the experience had unfolded just as the heavenly messenger had predicted.


I hope you all enjoyed! ^-^

Well, I gotta go open presents! I probably will be done by... sometime in the afternoon. XD

Have a merry Christmas and jam on!!
