Because I need to believe in it.
Its power and presence I cannot afford to be without.
Its infectiousness persuades me.
With Charles Dickens, among other classics on Christmas, this tale grips my faith, and, my imagination like no other story.
Christmas' miracle of sharing astounds me.
It grabs at my heart strings.
It captures my attention daily when I'm awake to witnessing its contagion everywhere when others help, seek out the lost, assist the needy, and, helps the neighbor ousted from his home earlier today in Roseville, Michigan.
Without Christmas, this culture would be less.
Others would be less also.
And, the world.
