Christmas Eve

Peace from God!

Мир Божји!

Christ is Born! 

Христос се Роди!

Tonight, per the Julian Calendar, it's Christmas Eve. 
[The Icon of the Nativity (right) is 15th century, egg tempera on lime wood, from the Church of the Nativity of the Virgin in the village of Vanivka (Poland). Lviv National Museum.]

And here is my favorite Christmas song video from Serbia Анђели Певају [The Angels are Singing].  Near the beginning, you see the hands of a girl making thread from wool and narrator's voice says:  "whatever you weave, tie your threads to heaven." 

And one more, called Божић, Благи Дан [Christmas, Blessed Day].

Whatever your tradition, best wishes and "tie your threads to heaven" for a prosperous and blessed New Year.
