These are a few of my favorite things. But, wait. There's more.
"An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests." (Luke 2:9-14).
It was a strange night filled with strange things. A not-so-silent night filled with childbirth cries, angels singing, shepherds shouting, animals braying, and a newborn baby crying. Strange ways for strange things. But, those things that happened that night are at the top of my list of favorite things.
"For to us a child is born." (Isaiah 9:6). Can it get any better than that?
