    Christmas has always been the most special time of year for me. I’m a Catholic in a Protestant world, but at least Church of England members also went to church on Christmas Eve and Christmas Morn -Hundreds of years of tradition, everyone walking through the Silent Night.  Stars shining brightly in the midnight sky, leading us towards Churches to worship the birth of Christ.  For me, it has always been a more religious holiday than just a commercial one, and how I wish that were still so.
