MERRY CHRISTMAS READERS!
Yeah, there’s not much else to say here. This isn’t going to be a long post. Short and sweet, because all of us have things we want to do for our Christmas Eve! Myself included! And really quick: Axtara – Banking and Finance is out, and there’s a Christmas Sale on! Anyway …
I love the Christmas season. I love being able to wish everyone a Merry Christmas as I’m out and about. I love seeing everyone’s homes all decorated with bright, cheery lights. And I love being able to drag out all the Christmas songs of good cheer, love, and peace on Earth. Christmas is, even in 2020, that one time of the year when people seem to feel a bit more dedicated to seeing and spreading good will.
Which has been great, because if there ever was a year where some peace on Earth and good will toward mankind was needed, 2020 is definitely a standout in recent memory.
So what’s the point of this post? Well, to maybe help that out a little. To wish you all a Merry Christmas with friends, family, associates … whoever. And to talk a little bit about Christmas itself.
Christmas is a special time of year. A season set apart from the rest of the chaos of day to day life to celebrate a birth some 2000-odd years ago. I think it says a lot about the spirit and meaning behind that birth that even those who don’t hold it in special regard still enjoy and respect the season itself that it’s in celebration of. It’s a special season, and I hope that all of you readers out there have found a place, a reason, or a gift to celebrate, contemplate, and rejoice in.
Merry Christmas. To all of you.
Now, before you go, I have one last thing to share. One thing I love about Christmas is the music. From classic carols to modern classics like Mariah Carey (yes, I like that song). And as I puzzled over how this year to make this post a bit more meaningful, I hit on it! I’m going to share one rendition of one of my favorite Christmas songs, Carol of the Bells. No particular rendition (there are a lot of them out there). But that’s not all. I’m going to link it, but then I’d urge all of you to find and share some of your own favorite Christmas songs in the comments for everyone to listen to.
Merry Christmas readers. May you have peace, love, and joy this holiday season.
