If you're Catholic, a special part of our Christmas observance begins this Wednesday, November 30th.
(This is one of my most favorite prayers EVER...if not in fact my favorite of all.)
St. Andrew Christmas Prayer
Hail, and blessed be the hour and moment at
which the Son of God was born of a most pure
Virgin at a stable at midnight in Bethlehem in the
piercing cold. At that hour vouchsafe, I beseech
Thee, to hear my prayers and grant my desires.
Through Jesus Christ and His most Blessed Mother.
