I just wanted to pop in and wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
While I don’t consider myself a Christian, I do celebrate the holiday. To me, it is about spending time with family and friends and wishing good will and giving to others (is that not how He would want his birth celebrated anyway?). I don’t have a whole lot of money, but I bought a bag of food for the food bank. I have more money than I did three years ago though…
Three years ago I was sitting in a shelter with my baby boy. We had nothing. Or so we thought. I was blown away and still am to this day, by the amazing generosity and giving spirit that come over people, particularly at this time of year. Because of complete strangers, my baby boy and I were able to have a Christmas celebration. After that, I don’t care if I only have $20 in my bank account. I will give whatever I can because I know that I will be helping somebody that needs it. I know that for sure because of the help my son and I received. I always thought up until then that I never had enough to give. Well, I can tell you from experience that a can of soup means the world to somebody who has nothing.
And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, then how about you share details in a comment below about a celebration you take part in so that I can join you and spread the word? I don’t like this PC stifling of beliefs. I believe in including everyone’s celebrations (provided they are intended as peaceful and loving in nature… in other words, that don’t promote hurting others or animals), but we can’t do that if we don’t know about the customs. You’re always welcome to join me!
Merry Christmas to all!!!!!!!!!
