O Come Emmanuel
It's almost here. That best day of the year. Truth be told, since I became a Christian, Easter overtook Christmas as my favorite time of year. It remains so to this day. Nonetheless, Christmas is still that fusion of spiritual joy and worldly (in the good sense) happiness that makes it a close second.
I know the picture is a bit sentimental and certainly not accurate on a biblical level, but as I've written elsewhere, the magi journeying through the deserts to find Jesus always held a special place in my mind and heart, even as a non-believer.
