A Most Happy Holiday

Santapooltruck2As the song says, Christmas is truly the most wonderful time of the year. The season of giving, family and togetherness, it’s when we show those closest to us how much we love them and how important they are in our day-to-day lives.  

It’s also a time that reminds us of our childhood and connects us with both the past and the future. Who can ever forget the heady feeling of anticipation of opening presents and what a joy it is to see that same excitement in eyes of our children. 

Yes, Christmas gets a bad rap sometimes as many people spend money they don’t have while the engines of rampant commercialism draw us into shops and malls. And while it’s easy to get caught up in all the hype, it’s important to remember why Christmas time is so special. 

The true joy of the holiday has little to do with all the expensive beads and bangles. For some it’s a time to celebrate the birth of their savior, for others it’s a more secular observance. Either way, the beauty of Christmas exists in the heart. While all those ugly sweater parties and office parties can be great fun, there’s a much deeper and more abiding meaning that reaches far beyond the material world.

The traditions we observe may be dressed up in tinsel and garland, but even without the familiar holiday trappings, the sense of connection we share with family and friends will always shine brightly. In other words, Christmas is all about love and that is what makes it so enduringly wonderful!
