All I have for you today are some old photographs, little pieces of time preserved on paper (and now online). These pictures are static, they are a captured second in the millennium of moments that we call history. That's all they are really, and yet we are able to see and feel so much from them. We see people, imagine their hope, their Christmas spirit. We see that, even in the gloomiest of times, these people honored Christmas in their hearts.
