HAPPY CHRISTMAS FREO!
I don’t care about the Christian aspects of Christmas. I don’t care much at all about the shopping frenzy and buying of mostly useless gifts. But I do like that it is a time where people get together and share food and drinks and have a good time.
Christmas is that special period of the year when people are just that wee bit more considerate and are willing to give, care, and share more, and think about other people. Christmas is what all year should be, not about self, or one’s ego, but about those who might need a hand. Too many out there feel unloved and unwanted and as a community we have to make an effort to embrace and include them.
But most of all for me Christmas is about children. When I watch Carols by Candlelight on television, or in a park, the shiny eyes of happy, sleepy kids, bring tears to my eyes. Kids are the most special beings who deserve all our love.
