The First Noel

Day 336 December 4, 2013

“The first Noel the angels did say   Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay;   In fields where they lay, keeping their sheep,On a cold winter’s night that was so deep:  Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel, Born is the King of Israel.”

“The First Noel”

“Censor something that doesn’t need to be. Show it to people and see how they react.” from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin

“The First Noel (also written The First Noël and The First Nowell) is a traditional classical English carol, most likely from the 18th century, although possibly earlier.  The word Noel comes from the French word Noël meaning Christmas, from the Latin word natalis which translates as birthday”  -Wikipedia

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?”  Dr. Seuss

“Want to keep Christ in Christmas? Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, forgive the guilty, welcome the unwanted, care for the ill, love your enemies, and do unto others as you would have done unto you.” ― Steve Maraboli
