Christmas Eve 23Then we hurried off to our candlelight service to celebrate the birth of our Savior, the reason we celebrate Christmas!!!

"While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped Him in cloths and placed Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn." Luke 2:6-7
