This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

It's Called Christmas With A Capital "C"...

I don't know about you, but I am one of those people who prefer to say, "Merry Christmas"
instead of "Happy Holidays". It makes me feel good to say it.  When I say it, I am transferring years of tradition and gathering of friends and family when I pass the greeting along to those I care about...

I think of it as a very special birthday celebration and God loved us all so much He wanted each of us to celebrate with our families.  It is a time of love and forgiveness.  It is hanging lights, decorating, baking and special music.  It is setting up the tree with the manger beneath with an angel and star above it.  It is about thinking of those we love and showing them how much.  I love the fact Thanksgiving comes before Christmas.  First we are thankful, then we celebrate. 

My girlfriend emailed this to me and I practically stood up from my chair and cheered!

Cool video and I agree that "Merry Christmas" sends it's own special message.
