The name "Immanuel" is given to Jesus, and it is something we kind of forget about until the Christmas season.

Chaotic Christmas

We sing songs like Silent Night, and we expect all to be calm and all to be bright. We expect everything to fall into place just like a lifetime Christmas special, and I think these expectations can set us up for some real disappointment. Honestly, I feel like Black Friday shopping is a better analogy for the Christmas season than Silent Night.
