Silent Night

O Come, O Come Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appears

Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel 

What does it mean to be Gay and Coptic on Christmas?  Well for me, it's the above lyric.  Nothing more, and nothing less.  Presents are fun but who needs them.   It's about remembering that amidst all the monotony, the strife and pain and confusion, there is a constant Emmanuel, the very real and present "God Is With Us."
