Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza or Festivus it’s a special time of the year. While the act of gift giving has been polluted by the commercial world, we can still recall the original meaning. This is the time to love our families, friends and yes, enemies. Put discord aside and give to others something of ourselves, no matter how small. It’s amazing how good it will make you feel, even if it’s fleeting. It can also be a time of self discovery and we all need to step back, take a breath and see what can be. Find those things to celebrate about this past year and look forward to the next. I celebrate Christmas, so Merry Christmas from my family to yours.
