“There are many things from which I might have derived good, by which I have not profited, I dare say. Christmas among the rest. But I am sure I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round – apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if ...
... anything belonging to it can be apart from that – as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people ...
... below them as of they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound to other journeys. And therefore, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, ...
... God bless it!”

Charles Dickens - A Christmas Carol.
“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling: 'How could it be so? It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes or bags!' And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch ...
... thought of something he hadn't thought before! 'Maybe Christmas,' he thought, 'doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas . . . perhaps . . . means a little bit more!'”

Dr. Seuss - How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
These two examples of literature and so many more all express the same thing, that this day, this time of year represents something more – something that words cannot describe. I think it is life, but that is far too simple. We go through the year with our ups and our ...
... downs to eventually get to this time.

We look out in the cold dark wintery night's sky, snow falling gently around us, isolating us in our own silence.

And off in the distance we see a light, seemingly glowing in a halo as it reflects off the falling snow.
As busy the year was we finally see reason to pause – to cleanse – to hope. This effect the our lives and in this time and we feel – we see - we help. We become better – we become more.

This season in particular, people live their lives almost Christ-like – almost by ...
... accident. This is all that Jesus wanted – but all year-round. This is why this day is not a just a holiday. It is not a day only for Christians it’s a day for all of us. It is a celebration of that “little bit more”, and we give that day a name of Christmas, because ...
... regardless of how you see him, he gave us the inspiration of being a little bit more.

Be courageous, dare to dream, dare to hope. Live by example. As you go shopping this year for that perfect gift, wish the other people with you in line, your cashier, the parking ...
... attendant and all you come in contact with a deep felt and meaningful “Merry Christmas.” If you see someone who needs help carrying boxes or bags, lend them a hand. This will be The Start. If you believe in the spirit of this season, and you act with that spirit, you ...
... will spread that spirit to every person you greet. And who knows, if you caught one of them in a moment of deep misery, you may give them the best gift they will receive all year; something they could have never given themselves – that something more – ...
“It's Christmas Eve! It's - it's the one night of the year when we all act a little nicer, we smile a little easier, we cheer a little more. For a couple of hours out of the whole year, we are the people that we always hoped we would be!”
