Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Xmas, the reason for the season, war on Christmas, fighting for equality, freedom of speech – Wow, it’s been a very political season, or maybe I’m just at the age that I’m seeing it more, and it’s always been political. I’m glad we all have the right to stand up for what we believe in. I support celebrating this wonderful holiday the way you choose to celebrate it, whether you’re Christian, Muslim, atheist, gay, straight, or just plum crazy. You make the reason for your season, and that’s what makes it special.
Today is Christmas – a day of love, joy, and laughter. For me, today is about my family. Enjoying the magic of Christmas through the eyes of my two little children. My kids are what makes today wonderful. Everything that has happened over this past year that has caused pain or stress is left behind. Nothing is as wonderful as seeing the magic and love of Christmas on my children’s faces.
I’m reminded today that I am surrounded by the people that love me and my little family the most, people that want to share this time with us. I’m thankful for those wonderful people in our lives who show us love, compassion, respect and give us such strong support, more than we could ever ask for – people who work hard to make our lives better everyday. These are the people that I call family, so, from my family to yours, Happy Everything!
