Christmas Eve is the last day of Advent. Tomorrow, we celebrate the arrival of Jesus as a baby. This baby is fully God and fully man: “God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made …” but who also “was made man.” (Nicene Creed).
He is a wonder too marvelous to comprehend.
The colors of Advent are purple and blue symbolizing repentance and expectation. Many Christians keep a midnight vigil on Christmas Eve, as they await the coming of the Lord.
The above picture is cold and beautiful. I believe those concepts are appropriate for Advent because while we await the return of the Lord, this world can be a cold place, but in the hope and promise of Christ His life here is also beautiful.
