Merry Christmas!

It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.  ~Charles Dickens

The universal joy of Christmas is certainly wonderful.  We ring the bells when princes are born, or toll a mournful dirge when great men pass away.  Nations have their red-letter days, their carnivals and festivals, but once in the year and only once, the whole world stands still to celebrate the advent of a life.  ~Author Unknown

MERRY CHRISTMAS to each of you who read this little blog of mine! I hope you each have a fantastic day celebrating, whether with friends or family. I will be spending it with my family, enjoying time together and spending the day with Christmas lights on and the fire blazing. 

I know that for some, Christmas is a very difficult, painful, or grief-filled day. For those of you who are alone, struggling through an illness, grieving the loss of someone close in your life, or any other number of reasons, I hope that you experience some love and joy tomorrow, and that someone in your life is able to reach out to you. I'm sorry for your pain, and please know there are people out there who care about you and can help you if you need it! 

Now it's your turn:
What's one of your favorite traditions on Christmas Day?
