Peace and Goodwill to all Mankind!

Merry Christmas everybody!!!
Hope you're spending the day with family and friends.

Ever wonder why folks were so excited about Jesus' birth? Here's a little snippet straight from Handel's Messiah (borrowed from the book of Isaiah), foretelling the birth of Christ:

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Several hundred years before the birth of Jesus, an announcement was his arrival, his authority and his identity. Very, very cool.
