One of the downsides of living in London is that it’s awfully far north. Meaning, of course, that it’s dark for much of the day. The sun doesn’t rise until about 8:00, and it sets about 3:30.
All this, however, makes Christmas that much more cheery. When you walk along and see the decorations and the lights, it reminds you of warmth and hope and coziness.
And even in all the darkness, living in a northern country is a good reminder of the One who is the light of the world.
