"I am sure I have always thought of Christmas time, when it comes around-apart from the veneration due its sacred name and origin, if any thing belonging to it can be apart from that-as a good time: a kind, forgiving charitable, pleasant time: the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys."
-A Christmas Carol
by Charles Dickens
Merry Christmas, all of you. :o) Here's to freely opened hearts throughout the next year.
God bless you!
