Bah, Humbug you say?
Sorry people, but Christmas is exactly what "YOU" make it; remember that everyone. Yes, it is has become very commercialized but "you" don't have to make it that way, do you? - that is each person's choice to make. My choice is to make it as enjoyable as possible for those I keep near and dear to my heart. Did you know that when this Christmas is over there are 364 (or 365 in a leap year) days until the next Christmas? So, why do people put themselves through the stress of cramming it all in in two weeks or just the month of December? Believe or not, Christmas falls on Dec 25th EVERY YEAR! Amazing, huh?
So on that note - be well this time of year and enjoy the reason for this season!
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And the angel said unto them,
Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
