The Spirit of Christmas Present

Christmas Day 2016 is almost here and while many may have “visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads,” I am a bit more reflective thinking about the Christmas Spirit and just what it all means.

Christmas spirit, I’m sure, means something different to everyone. For me, this quote from Santa himself sums it up; “Just remember, the true spirit of Christmas lies in your heart.”

It’s not about gifts or material things; you can’t buy it. And no one can give it to you. It comes from within. It’s about giving of yourself – your time and your talents. It’s about patience and tolerance and the willingness to see the good in people. It’s about caring and compassion and goodwill toward our neighbors. It’s about friends and family and loved ones near and far. It’s about being in the moment and being thankful. It’s about “getting it” – knowing that if there were no gifts, no decorations, no lights – the true spirit of Christmas would still shine.  What a wonderful world it could be.

Wishing you happiness, health, peace and prosperity in the true spirit of Christmas now and always.
