For many, Christmas will come as a welcome relief from the social, political and environmental challenges that have occurred this year. For others, the holiday season itself brings fear and discomfort. In Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Frodo experiences similar anxiety when facing the uncertainty that lies ahead in life.

“In those days a decree went out from Emperor Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration and was taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. All went to their own towns to be registered. Joseph also went from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to the city of David called Bethlehem, because he was descended from the house and family of David. He went to be registered with Mary, to whom he was engaged and who was expecting a child.”
