I love this song by Paul Simon, not just because it’s about Christmas but for the exposure of what we are getting ready for, the power, glory and story of Christmas day. The day this year may be like any other but it is good to stop and remember that this isn’t just a story reeled out each year in the hope of raising the economy as we desperately try and find the perfect present for the people around us. There is power and glory in the manager.
“Getting ready, getting ready
Getting ready for Christmas Day
For the power and the glory and the story of Christmas day.”
