So, it is Christmas. It is. That is on December 25th. Some prefer to skip it as John Grisham wrote in his tome, "Skipping Christmas."
I love Christmas, and, I relish saying "Merry Christmas" to everyone I meet.
Christmas is a gift. It is a present. It is, in fact, the Presence of God-become-one with human flesh. The reason for the season is front and center. It is.
