The fun and freedom of Christmas, of presents decorating have been so “politically corrected”….that the innocence, spontaneity and fun have faded! I would like to say, without even thinking about it “Merry Christmas!” That would be so refreshing!
I know and respect the vast amount of religions in the world. And that is great. It has been that way for centuries. Let’s keep it that way. No one apprehensive of offending someone because you said “Merry Christmas.” if it is comfortable for your belief system….great. But quite frankly, we are all in this together. This is a small world in many ways. Here on the Jersey Shore we took a beating compliments of “Sandy.” It will take many, many months if not years to pick up the pieces. But we are ALL working together….to help one another. Whether you say “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Chanukah”…say it and mean it and enjoy the sincerity of saying it. We have a lot of damage all around us. We are all willing to help everyone heal….and that is what is so great about “mankind.” As we pickup the pieces, and put our lives back together. Let’s all take a deep breath, and enjoy the beauty of this day. Individually, each and everyday….every holiday….every event…every special moment of life! As a motivational speaker, I speak about change, and how we adapt to it, what we have to do to adapt to it. We are certainly going thru change now……and this is going to be a tough one, for a long time to come. But I will celebrate the beauty simplicity of Christmas the next several days…and enjoy every special moment! To those who celebrate this special holiday….I wish you and your family a genuine “Merry Christmas” to you and the people who are special in your life!
