Merry Christmas Eve! José Y Maria by Everett Patterson
Everett Patterson's 2014 Xmas card, "José y Maria"
José y Maria Look For A Room Everett Patterson is a comic book artist and editor living in Portland, Oregon. He posted a thought-provoking picture on his blog this week, titled "José y Maria."
Jose y Maria. So many clever nuances. Quote from the artist: "I have a small hope that this Christmas image will come to mind when we see other “down and out” people huddling outside of gas stations, reminding us that our Savior’s parents (and indeed, Jesus himself) were at one time similarly troubled."

the tradition of holiday gingerbread houses started with the edible house in the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, Hansel and Gretel. When the Brothers first penned the tale in Germany in 1812, they described the witch’s house as made “of bread and covered with cakes, while its windows were of clear sugar.”

The Christmas Game - the BEST Christmas tradition ever! Perfect gift exchange idea for a family on Christmas eve or for any holiday party! #christmaseve #christmasgame #christmastradition #familytradition
Here's an idea called the Christmas game. A good idea for Christmas parties. Collect a bunch of small dollar store items and have someone hide some bigger stuff in them - like gift cards or money, and pass them out with the ability for them to be stolen. I can imagine this becoming a hit quite easily.

“Virgin Mary Consoles Eve” by Sister Grace Remington, OCSO Sisters of the Mississippi Abbey ~ "My mother, my daughter, life-giving Eve, / Do not be ashamed, do not grieve. / The former things have passed away, / Our God has brought us to a New Day. / See, I am with Child, / Through whom all will be reconciled. / O Eve! My sister, my friend, We will rejoice together / Forever / Life without end." — Sr Columba Guare © 2005 Sisters of the Mississippi Abbey
MARYS for May #22 --New Eve Mary Comforts Eve Sr. Grace Remington, OCSO, Crayon and Colored Pencil Drawing, 2005
I love this picture of the Blessed Mother and Eve - it has long been one of my favorites - so many tender details.
Today is the Feast Day of Adam and Eve (Plus, the Origin of Christmas Trees)
