Merry Christmas to All, and to All a Good Night

There is an excellent chance that my naivety holds great influence over many of my life views, but Christmas is still an amazing time of year in my eyes. I do understand the negativity that many people hold towards it. The greed, the commercialism, the glorifying of questioned religious happenings, the bizarre traditions involving pine trees and an old generous man dressed in red. I myself am still trying to figure out the purpose of the fruitcake…

Still, my comfort and joy comes from the goodness I see in the foundation of what Christmas stands for (and the people who really REALLY go to town decorating the outside of their houses… yay for lights!). Even looking past the religious significance, Christmas and the holiday season involve bringing people together, and will always revolve more around giving than getting*.  There’s nothing quite like seeing the look on someones face when you’ve managed to get just the right gift.

So whether you share the love of the season that I do, or detest the many radio renditions of “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” (really guys, 3 was enough), I wish the best to all and anyone for the holidays.

Santa, if you happen to read this, I’d like a Gibson. If you happen to have one lying around.

Merry Christmas!
