The Magi Reach Their Destination

Before we bid adieu from Nogales, we want to share with you our favorite Magi-sighting from elsewhere. In this photo, our friend Joanne McPortland captures the contradiction of Christmas. Amid the joy of Jesus’s coming, we are reminded of the sin and suffering that draws the compassionate Lord to come to Earth in the first place. Or, as McPortland’s picture shows, without the evil of the Abominable Snowman, there can be no star of Bethlehem. (Don’t believe the Abominable Snowman from 1964’s Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is evil? Look below and think again.) Here’s that champion photo:
