Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! This is the greeting I share with anyone I meet at this time of year. It’s not meant to be an affront to anyone else’s beliefs. But it is my way of sharing with someone that special gift, feeling, and enjoyable
presence of Jesus in my life.

Sharing happy holidays is a secular term expressing something different. Not the birth of Jesus, but a day closing work and schools and some stores. But for me, Merry Christmas says God touched our lives through the birth of Jesus – for all people – believers or not. Peace spread throughout the world as we witness the visit of the Magi. Shepherds remind us that Jesus loves everyone. So during this time extend greetings of a Merry Christmas to everyone you meet and truly share the peace and love of Jesus.

Merry Christmas!
