It seems like only yesterday we were helping our kids dress up in costume for halloween. At that time, Christmas was a long time off. Now the shopping is finished, or at least should be, and we are close to one of the most beautiful times of the year. Kids of all ages are looking forward to Santa coming down the chimney to leave gifts and other goodies.
We can’t lose sight of what the real reason is for this season. It is wonderful to get together with family and friends and enjoy great foods and drink (remember the egg nog), but there is something more.
I love the midnight mass when everything is very quiet and peaceful. If you have ever attended this mass you would know that something greater than shopping takes place on Christmas. We lose sight of the important things and this time of year makes us realize what is important.
Have a Merry Christmas!
