We parked out at a school on the southeast part of town at a higher elevation so we could observe The Star of Bethlehem tonight. I was amazed thinking that Jupiter and Saturn hadn't come so close at night in 800 years and also thinking that this was what the sky probably looked like 2,000 years ago when Jesus was born.
We've been in the Christmas mood. We painted the front windows and put up lights. I made Christmas cards. My sister sent us a package with instructions to open immediately. They were our Christmas slippers.
