Christmas Eve is moving into into the Feast of Christmas.

For some of us, when a Cambridge chorister sings the first verse of the carol ‘Once in a Royal David’s City’ then the day begins. Mrs Alexander wrote this hymn as the first of a series to help children connect with the Christian message. (See also All things Bright and Beautiful, There is a Green Hill). The message of Hope and a Future begins in an ordinary family guest room in Bethlehem.
