Sending Holiday Greetings to All

with one comment

Every culture and every religion has a time and celebration of some of the best virtues of humankind.  For those of us who are culturally Christian, Christmas celebrates our goodness.  Whether it be the stories and songs of young baby Jesus, focusing on peace; or the tales of Kris Kringle bringing joy through gifts, these are some of the best traits we can have.   Even the excess of these things, such as the commercialism that preys on our desire to give to our loved ones, are still rooted in something beautiful.

So, to all, however you celebrate Christmas; even if that is not celebrating this day at all, I wish you joy and peace, and to find the best of humankind in yourself and others.  Or to quote Tiny Tim from the pen of Dickens, “God bless us, everyone”
