On this most wonderful, most magical, most holy of nights, I wish you, my dear friends, the very best of the holiday season and the most blessed of new years!
Isang dalaga’y maglilihi, batang lalaki ang sanggol
At tatawagin siyang Emmanuel, Emmanuel!
(Kahuluga’y Nasa atin ang Diyos).
Magalak! Isinilang ang Poon! Sa sabsaban siya’y nakahimlay.
Nagpahayag ang mga anghel: Luwalhati sa Diyos!
And for my friends across the oceans, here’s the translation of the song:
Behold, a Virgin shall be with Child and shall bring forth a Son
And they shall call His name Emmanuel, Emmanuel.
(In other words, God With Us). ~Matthew 1:23
Rejoice, the Savior has been born! In a manger the Christ Child is lain.
All the angels throughout proclaim: Glory to God!
PS. I will be spending the rest of these last days of this year in the bosom of my favorite blessings in the world (my hubby and my 5 boys) and our families. I will see you after the first day of 2012 with the promise of lots of happy surprises for you throughout the new year!
Have a wonderful time bonding with those you hold dear, and may the coming year be filled with even more love and laughter for you and yours!
