FReeper Canteen ~ Merry Christmas!! ~ 25 DEC 2012
Serving The Best Troops and Veterans In The World !! | laurenmarlowe

 LUKE 2:1-20
King James Version (KJV)

1And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

2(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

6And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

17And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

18And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

19But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

20And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

Palm trees wave, are you listenin'?
In the pool, water's glistenin'
A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight
Livin' in a desert wonderland.

Gone away is the blizzard,
Here to stay is the lizard,
A warm sunny day, we like it that way,
Livin' in a desert wonderland.

In the desert we will have a picnic,
Cactus, sand, rattlesnakes and sun.
Christmas dinner is an old tradition,
It's pinto beans and tacos by the ton.

Later on we'll perspire,
Temperatures rise even higher,
A warm sunny day, we like it that way,
Livin' in a desert wonderland.

Around 1690, Marc-Antoine Charpentier wrote a Christmas Midnight Mass where the tunes were all drawn from French Christmas carols of the era. There are several recordings from the 1960's that use modern instruments and place the piece in the early Baroque.

Then in 1997 Marc Minkowski came along with the Musicians of the Louvre and made a recording that places the mass firmly in the late Renaissance, and it's a very convincing recording. Last year all movements of the mass were available, but this year all but the first movement have been blocked from the US. So enjoy a sound that is foreign to modern ears. Catch the improvisation on the organ at the end.

Charpentier: Midnight Mass (Kyrie)

Love your "tree"..... *HUGS*

Did you have to work today? We did...really hard and fast so we could go home early.

How's your traffic? Hopefully your commuters are all where they were going.

Taxed, or as other translations put it, counted in a census.

That was an awfully pushy government, being willing to force people to actually go back to their childhood homes, rather than reporting about those homes and paying corresponding taxes from wherever they were.

Yet even THAT wasn’t the issue that moved the Jewish zealots to try to shuck Rome off of their backs.

Thank you and your crew for continuing this wonderful Canteen for all our wonderful troops serving and retired.
Here, in Connecticut, it just started to snow, expect about two inches and will stop in the morning so all can go to visit relatives.
Merry Christmas to you all!
God Bless our military.

Christmas is full of shiny things
That sparkle, gleam and glow;
These holiday pleasures dazzle us,
And yet, deep down, we know...

That Christmas has its special gifts,
But our year-round joy depends
On the cherished people in our lives,
Our family and our friends.
