    Many parishioners of my acquaintance prefer to go to church the night before so they can enjoy Christmas morning around the tree with their loved ones without looking at their watches.

    This Christmas will be the first time my church has not offered a Christmas morning service, simply because the retired priest who was always happy to do it is just not up to the job anymore -- he celebrated the eucharist for the last time on Thanksgiving.  His wife was both relieved and sorrowful: it marked the end of 55 years of ordained ministry.
