“Happy birthday to You,
Happy birthday to You,
Happy birthday to you.“
For some, Christmas lights will be twinkling and a new born savior babe will appear beneath the brightest star.
For others, eight magical candle-lit nights will be followed by eight magical smile-filled days, and a temple will be reborn.
A few more will be sharing the Yule Feast with family and friends, in celebration of the solstice of winter.
And for others still, an extra long weekend will simply be enjoyed and celebrated – all because there’s a whole bunch of people out there who just happen to believe in things like savior babes and magical lights.
Regardless of what persuasion you happen to be this year, i hope you enjoy your holiday season to it’s fullest. i hope you enjoy all the food you eat too much – or not too much – of. i hope you enjoy your wine. Unless you don’t drink of course. i hope that your celebrations are merry, boisterous and bright. Unless you prefer to stay home, quietly snuggled up in front of the fire, real or imagined. Most importantly though, i hope – i pray – that you take the time to enjoy the people in your life, and reflect upon how important they are. How important we all are. Together we are a living web, each of us merely a strand, and none of us truly able to survive without the others. Whether created or coincidental, we’re all we’ve got, and that’s exactly good enough.
Thank you for being a part of my web this year, and i sincerely hope that the Naughty List finds not your name upon it.
