How Christmas and Easter interconnect

“The whole life of Christ was a continual Passion; others die Martyrs, but Christ was born a Martyr… His birth and his death were but one continual act, and his Christmas-day and his Good Friday, are but the evening and morning of one and the same day.”

John Donne, opening his Christmas sermon (Dec 25, 1626).
