Simple Letters, A Beautiful Word: NOEL!
I love the simplicity, but deep meaning of this word …
1. Christmas; also, a shout of joy at Christmas for the birth of the Savior. [Obs.]
2. (Mus.) A kind of hymn, or canticle, of medi[ae]val origin, sung in honor of the Nativity of our Lord; a Christmas carol. –Grove.

I love the reminder to our family that this is what Christmas is about.
