Christmas is the most hectic time of the year. There are gifts to buy, cards to write and food to prepare. If we do not slow down, it will pass us by.
Holiday happiness is all around. People smile at their neighbors and greet those they do not know. Carolers proceed from house to house, spreading good cheer.
We cannot let the things we need to do keep us from experiencing the joy of the season. It comes but once a year. Let us savor this time while it lasts.
Getting ready for the day can be quite an ordeal. But there are moments in between which should not be missed. Otherwise, the occasion has lost its meaning.
Look into the eyes of a child to recapture the excitement of days gone by. Everything is fun and frolic. Though adults, we have not grown out of this.
Spread love and joy both far and wide. Keep a warm heart for the cold days to come. Never forget the way it feels to open your eyes on Christmas Day.
