More things get done and sorted at this time of the year, mostly over a short period coming up to Christmas. whether you are a believer or not it is hard not to get caught up in the spirit of Christmas. it's temporary goodwill rarely lasting beyond the Christmas season, sadly like the temporary truce at Christmas during the 14 -18 war when Fritz and Tommy played a friendly football game followed by killing each other on Boxing day.
Although we are already geared up for any onslaught of visiting friends and relatives; however, it seems unlikely to happen being our progeny all have their own small tribes and followers to make merry with and the distance between us can be a trial if one travels at this point in time.
I hear that in many places something has happened to Christmas;that it is changing from a time of merriment and carefree gaiety to a holiday filled with tedium; that many people dread the day and the obligation to give Christmas gifts is a nightmare to weary bored souls; that the children of enlightened parents no longer believe in Santa Claus; And that all in all, the effort to be happy and have pleasure makes many honest hearts grow dark with despair instead of beaming with goodwill and cheerfulness
.Fortunately We/I have fulfilled our moral obligations. to our loved ones and friends and are now ready for the outcome of Christmas whatever it may be.
Wishing you all a Merry and Peaceful Christmas.
