“Christmas brings to mind the value of life and encourages acts of kindness, compassion and benevolence. It is a time for considering the virtues that make life beautiful.
Christmas causes people to smile more, to communicate more and to graciously give up that “last” parking space at the mall.
Christmas unites parents and children from one generation to another; it melts away imagined differences bred by the elusiveness of time.
Christmas opens the door to forgiveness and allows grudges to be dropped with finality. It generates merriment and laughter among family, friends and strangers.
The true meaning of Christmas is found by being kind and decent. It rejuvenates the aspiration of Peace on Earth, Goodwill toward Men. In the midst of blinking lights, evergreens, gingerbread, gift selections and present wrapping, never let the spirit of Christmas dim.
Christmas is synonymous with love. And love is the magic of Christmas.
