icewolf: crescent moon (crescent moon)
Because everybody's sick of Matthew and Luke at this time of year (Mark starts with the ministry of John the Baptist and doesn't do a nativity story). And, honestly? John got it most right out of the four of them. Stables and shepherds and kings are great and all, but the Light is what Christmas--and Christianity--are really supposed to be about, for us.

in principio erat Verbum et Verbum erat apud Deum et Deus erat Verbum
hoc erat in principio apud Deum
omnia per ipsum facta sunt et sine ipso factum est nihil quod factum est
in ipso vita erat et vita erat lux hominum

...

In the beginning was the Word: and the Word was with God: and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made.
In him was life: and the life was the light of men.
