Christmas is Coming!
And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
Luke 2: 9-14

We are so honored that you come to Middleburg to get your joy on!
Bring your joy and share it. Give your joy and leave it for others. Take some joy away with you and spread it around. That will begin your Christmas season, in love, leading to the peace of Christmas as well, and maybe we'll all find ourselves saying, "I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year." - Charles Dickens, Ebenezer Scrooge, A Christmas Carol.
