I couldn't say it any better than Charles Dickens ... obviously
"But I am sure I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come around -- apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that -- as a good time: a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time: the only time I know of, in the long calendar year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. And therefore, uncle, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it!"*
Whether you are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, the miracle of lights or the principles of unity this season I wish you safe travels, low stress, a rollicking good time and above all, abundant peace and joy. Talk to you next week.
*This is my favorite passage from Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."
