Year after year, people line up for hours outside of stores, max out credit cards and put themselves through so much unneeded stress in the name of Christmas.
But that's not what Christmas is about. Have we truly forgotten what the Christmas spirit is?
What about spending time with our loved ones? What about helping out the less fortunate? What about holding on to our family traditions? What about spreading good cheer? Where has it all gone?
Every year, it saddens me to see people fighting over who gets the best gift or how many gifts one receives. To me, that's not love and it is definitely not the Christmas spirit.
Whether you believe in faith or not, we need to all work together to bring good cheer to all so that we may live in happiness and peace.
If you don't celebrate Christmas, I welcome any holiday greeting of your choosing and I look forward to learning more about your traditions!
If you don't have any belief, please accept my "Merry Christmas" as a greeting of good will and well wishes for you and your family! That's all I wish for!
From my traditions & faith, Merry Christmas!
Did you know that years ago, I wrote a short story called "Finding Christmas" for a contest which lead to this song? The story may be long gone, but the song is still here! Enjoy!
