May Christ our God bless all who celebrate the feast of His Birth in the flesh.
How this relates to the coming Antichrist? I don't know...

Thanks Shenouti! You beat me to it! I hope the Nativity of Our Lord last night (or today, since technically "today" started at sundown yesterday...oh nevermind! You know what I mean!) was a blessing to everyone! Merry Christmas! Christ is born!

I hope this feast is a blessing to you all!

I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.

Merry Christmas. Do all OO celebrate Christmas on the 7th of January ?
In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border. (Isaiah 19:19)

Nah.  Syrians and Indians celebrate on 25 December, and the Armenians keep the ancient tradition of observing Christmas and Epiphany on the same day (6 January).  This year, I celebrated Christmas three times!  :)
