At this time of year the hotels and other tourist establishments celebrate Yulefest - Winter Christmas in the Blue Mountains. There is something appropriate about hot roast and plum pudding on a winter's day rather than in summer heat ... but this photo is from my archives and taken on a summer Christmas day.
Luke 2:8-9 (New International Version)
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.
