While I’m not religious, I appreciate that the holiday season provokes in people a more charitable spirit. I sense more kindness from others and palpable excitement as Christmas day approaches. Here’s to Christmas cheer & generosity, regardless of religious affiliation, and let’s just be wonderful to each other more often. Okay? Okay. I’m signing up. I hope you get to spend the holidays with the kindest people. xo, m
I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable 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.
