Christmas Eve is my favorite day in the whole season. I like the sense of waiting for something to happen, and feeling snug inside while it's winter outside. The days have just begun to lengthen again. I'm not a morning person, and I really like the evening-times, and Christmas Eve is all about the night-time.
These images are of Mary and Jesus, which I really like.
