Merry Christmas...

Remember what Christmas is about this season.

(Here's a hint... it's not about motorcycles or games or toys, although those are cool too :)

If you are a Christian, it's about celebrating the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ...

If you're not... well it's still about the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, but if you haven't realized that yet, let it be about loving one another, living well and cleanly, and having happiness in your heart. Let yourself be happy.

In the aftermath of a nasty election and in the midst of dire conflict around the globe, cynicism and nastiness are still running rampant. Drop it. Set aside the desire to prove yourself smarter, cooler or more fashionable than the next guy. Just stop. Do something genuinely nice for no reason at all. Forgive someone who doesn't deserve it. (He did)

And don't sweat the small stuff. If you have a roof over your head, food for your family, and some form of transportation, you are making it. Anything beyond that is gravy.

Trust me... I'm mostly preaching to myself here, but I think the shoe probably fits a lot of people right now. So this Christmas season, as Bill and Ted would say...

"Be excellent to one another" (At least I think they said that)

Merry Christmas everyone.
