Peace on Earth
The season conjures up memories of holidays past, of the present, and hopes of future joy with family and friends. Irrespective of your faith or system of religion (or lack thereof), the concept of a time when peace is celebrated and family values are practiced is something to be sought after.
It has nothing to do with spending money in packed shopping malls and everything to do with what is important. Not everything that counts can be counted - not everything that can be counted, counts. There is a higher standard of living and it has to do with sharing love and fellowship. At Christmas, we seem to put aside some of the pettyness of routine life (I said some, not all) as people and to think about those who matter to us in our lives. At least that is the ideal. I hope that you all have an ideal Christmas.
Good will to everyone, everywhere.
However, for those of you who are not Christians...and on the lighter side...
