Observing the rituals and traditions of the Christmas season, while allowing for some spontaneity and flexibility, sometimes requires all the energies we can manage.
Despite all the madness and hassles, the season remains a very special time, celebrating one of history’s enduring events, giving reason for hope amidst the turmoil of mankind. About creating joy sometimes where there is next to none, making other lives better, reminding us of why families are so important.
That being said, the observer shifts full time into the holiday mode over the next couple of days. If you have a minute or two, enjoy one of my all-time favorite seasonal classics. Have a great Christmas.
