Christmas is only days away, people are wildly shopping and wrapping presents, a little snow is falling, trees and lights are up, the big meal is planned or maybe the trip is planned and we are all looking forward to the special day. It’s a busy time with parties and pageants and family gatherings. Someone is watching It’s a Wonderful Life and others are gathered around A Christmas Story!

Whatever you do for Christmas, I hope it is to remember the real reason for the season and the gift we were given. Hopefully we can share this love with those around us who we care the most about and avoid the not-so-subtle pressures around us to keep up with the Joneses.

So have fun! Go play in the snow. Go see Santa! Start a new tradition of some sort. Whether your Christmas is big or small you can make me memorable.

Christmas is meant to be a time of joy, laughter and thanksgiving so keep Christmas MERRY and your loved ones close.
