Merry Christmas Eve!
And so I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it’s been said
Many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you
Christmas Eve is one of the most special days of the year to me. Even more so than Christmas Day, which is a bit anticlimactic.
All the excitement and build up reaches a crescendo tonight. And now, with my three kids six years old and under, it’s really a special time of year. They are all caught up in the magic of the season while also learning about the religious background as well.
No matter what your beliefs are – whether the season means a man in a red suit comes down a chimney… or a babe was born and laid in a manger…or even something else…try to take some time to just enjoy being with the ones you love.
It may be in front of a fireplace in a little country town, on the boardwalk in New Jersey, rolling along in a New York City subway, or in a cafe in Morocco.
It doesn’t matter where you find yourself. Get outside tonight, take a deep breath of fresh air, look up at the stars and enjoy a quiet moment this season.
Whether you’re a frequent visitor to my little slice of the Internet, or just stopping by for the first time… have a cup of cheer tonight… maybe watch It’s A Wonderful Life….and from my JSP family here in the Great State of New Jersey to yours, wherever you may be in the world…
