The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

I love Christmas.
Everything about Christmas.

I love the lights, the trees, the stockings, the gifts, the giving, the receiving, the shopping (yes, even the shopping), the colors red & green, the movies, the music, the stories, the television shows (even those awful ones on the Hallmark Channel; the common theme of which is children trying to find a perfect match for their single parent), the Christmas themed dinnerware, everything.

It is, ironically, however, when I'm at my most secular.

But I am mindful every day of the year not just that Jesus lived and died, but why he did so.

So, as Tiny Tim says, "God bless us, everyone!"
