The readings might turn you to spending your own private Christmas with Jesus. Your prayerful imaginings could bring that about in two ways.
One way for you to have your own private Christmas with the newborn child would be for you to take him from his mother. Then as you let your gaze fall down on him, he opens his eyes to gaze up at you.
Another way for you to have your private Christmas with him, is for you to share the wonder St. Paul expressed it in his Letter to the Philippians, saying:
"You did not consider your equality with God something to be clung to. Rather, you emptied yourself, and being found human in appearance, you humbled yourself, becoming obedient to death, even to death on the cross."
