"The people walking in darkness have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned."
When we moved to Nashville in 2009, we started the tradition of going to the Opryland Hotel to see the Christmas lights. This year we went to see the ICE exhibit at Opryland, featuring the characters from Madagascar. We bundled up in the provided blue parkas and ventured into the sub-freezing zones. It was quite amazing to see the characters and scenes chiseled in ice. By the time we reached the "ice slides" I was frozen and left the sliding to the rest of the family!
As we neared the end, I braced myself for the unavoidable and overwhelming "gift shop" that awaited just around the corner beyond the exit. However, when we entered, I was stunned to see this:
