The neighborhoods are cheerier this time of year. Candles glow, wreaths are lit, twinkly lights abound, and then there are the manger scenes. Some are simplistic. Others have the Wise Men bearing gifts for Baby Jesus, along with a ton of supporters - Santa, Snowmen, the Grinch, Gingerbread Men, Charlie Brown and crew, et al. Some folks might not approve, but I appreciate the spirit.
It sums up this time of year - Jingle Bells and Jesus
No matter what, we all hope for Peace on Earth, Goodwill toward Men.
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I shall take a short blog break and be back in 2015 with reviews, poems, and assorted writing blather. Take care, everyone.
