Christmas Antiphon

For the duration of Christmastide, I've kept to the Christmas antiphon for the Magnificat. Like the O Antiphons as Advent shifts into the days before Christmas (Sapientiatide), Christmastide might be better served with a series of Hodie antiphons at a time when After Christmas sales are already happening on December 23!:

Today the Christ is born; today has a savior appeared; today on earth angels are singing, archangels rejoicing / today the righteous exult and say, Glory to God in the highest. Alleluia.
(A Monastic Breviary)
