No matter what your beliefs, Christmas in America is a time for being with loved-ones and sharing the good things in life with friends, family, and even strangers. Despite the commercialism and crass marketing of the season, it is one of the few times in American life when we are encouraged to love our fellow humans and be generous to those less fortunate – to embrace the "spirit of Christmas".
If only that spirit were not confined to a few days a year, our country would be a kinder, more community-spirited society. Enjoy your holiday, and try to hang on to some of that Christ-like spirit in your daily life.
