My Holiday Wish to You All-
I am picking up on a theme amongst my fellow bloggers, and that is one of dissing the Holidays. I find that sad- surely one can ignore the rampant commercialism and all the other crap and still enjoy the holiday season?
I love this time of year. Well, I hate the weather, because I am a beach and outdoor guy at heart, and I loathe being cold, but I love the dramatic snowstorms, the good cheer and the feeling of renewal and hope. I love the parties, and the cameraderie that people who are not knocking each other over the head to buy crap at Wal*Burp seem to feel this time of year.
You do not have to believe in Jesus, or anything else, to take part. It's just a special time of year. One of renewal, perhaps, or being grateful for what we have, and we, as Westerners, tend to have a lot. Perhaps you may just want to light a candle for somebody or something that means something to you.
May you all be happy now, and in the coming year!
PS- this ins't my last post before Xymas- we're home this year, so expect a few more, but I wanted to post this tonight.
