It's Christmas Eve. Many children around the World are waiting for Santa Claus, St. Nicholas, Sinter Klass or Kris Kringle (Names for Santa Around the World) or whatever the name you identify with to come and bring presents in the dead of the night. When you think about it, Christmas and New Year's are wonderful ways to end the year. Good cheer, family gatherings, parties and reflections on the coming year. We won't talk about the resolutions.
I often attend Midnight Mass at church. The choir sings a melody of Christmas songs before the Mass begins. The church is beautiful decorated with Christmas trees, wreaths and pointsettias. Everyone is in the spirit. The church is packed celebrating the birth of Jesus!
I wish everyone Happy Holidays enjoying the gift of family and friends and most of all love.
