Note to readers: Liturgical entries on this blog are based on the traditional calendar of the Books of Common Prayer and the traditional one-year Eucharistic lectionary. If you follow a newer calendar or three-year lectionary, there are variations in names for some Sundays and in the readings.

The purpose of this feast is admirably summarized in the antiphon for Morning Prayer from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer:
 Alleluia. Unto us a child is born; * O come, let us adore him. Alleluia.

May the Christ Child always be at the center of our celebrations. A blessed Feast of the Nativity to all.
