Merry Christmas

  1. Puer natus in Bethlehem, alleluia:
    Unde gaudet Jerusalem, alleluia, alleluia.
    In cordis jubilo, Christum natum adoremus,
    Cum novo cantico.

  3. I totally missed the Tolkien reference. I thought those three just to the right of the tree looked a little gnollish. Should have paid more attention to the labels.

    1. I'd seen it before so I was familiar with its origins, but it evokes more of a Narnia feel than Middle Earth to me.
