It has been a long night. Me and my hot cocoa only have a few minutes before we turn in early. Ho Ho Ho. But I thought I would take time for just one more story. Back in the throne room of Heaven plans were being made to announce the birth of one very special child. Michael, one of the angels, had just finished describing his heavenly display of comets and falling stars. Gabriel, a different angel, went on about his music plans, a great angelic choir of tens of thousands of voices, tuned with heavens finest and latest harmonies - ready to serenade the Earth. But God interrupted their conversation. “No,” he said, “that is not really what I had in mind. I planned a small family gathering, actually, we don’t need all those trimmings.” “But all my stars,” said Michael, “what will I do with them?” “And my music?” Gabriel added. “Father, let us do something, please,” Michael pleaded. “He just can’t go unannounced.” “Well, alright,” God said. “Gabriel, a few angels. And Michael, just one star.” Merry Christmas.
