Merry Christmas everyone and best wishes to a joyous new year!!!!!
Hey it’s that time of the year when hope fills the air. It’s Christmas, the biggest birthday party celebration across the globe. It’s the birth of Christ and the dawn of hope yet again. It’s the season of love and giving, of meeting old friends and relatives, of exchanging sweets and gifts, of carol rounds and parties, of heavy lunches & dinners, of Santa Claus and Christmas trees, of stars and cribs, of night masses and carol singing.
I’m sure that all of you will have done all or at least many of the above said, but at this time take a brief moment to ponder over these lines of a carol:
“Presents glitter on the tree,
Gifts for him or her or me,
But we find the best of all,
Mary’s baby in a cattle stall”
Point No 1: When we receive gifts we utter a spontaneous thank you to the giver of the gift, and we have the greatest gift of all……….
This is the time to say thank you.
Point No 2: We have been gifted far more than we realize and most of our gifts do not come wrapped in glittering paper and ensconced in a ribbon but they re nevertheless far more precious. As we realize the value of these gifts, be it our parents, or home, our physical faculties, family etc let us spare a thought for our brothers who do not have them. If we can do that this season will be the best way to celebrate this season.
Merry Christmas everyone and best wishes for a joyous and prosperous new year.
