Here are some of my favorite photographs from around the world, but especially from Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and North America. Geographically yours, D.J.Z.

Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, USA
Who wrote the lyrics to Away in a Manger? Its origins are mired in mystery, but we do know that the third verse was added later, first appearing in the 1890s:
"Be near me, Lord Jesus; I ask thee to stay
Close by me forever, and love me I pray.
Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,
And take us to heaven to live with thee there."
Merry Christmas!
