As far as I can remember, we have always celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ with a midnight dinner. All the family gathers, elegantly dressed up, around the dinner table and pray together with lighted candles in a dark room. The only light comes from the flickering candles on the table. Usually the mother or father leads the family prayers.
We followed the Christian tradition last night. My wife, Abdiel—one of the Twisters—and his father Alcibiades, joined me in the ceremony. There is so much to be thankful for to the Good Lord. At 66, my perspective of life has dramatically changed and every single detail around me has a value. Photography has also opened my eyes and I now appreciate more the reality that covers us like a magic blanket. During the year, I’ve tried to capture our daily life with my picture box and share them with our readers.
Today the day of Christmas, I will share with you, pictures of our Christmas table just a few seconds before the clock struck twelve on December 24, 2012.
Merry Christmas to you all and best wishes for the upcoming new year. Good Day.
