FILL IT UP WITH CHEER
The Christmas season has not always been
a season, nor has it always been a time of cheer.
A spiritual or religious observance at its origin,
it has through the last century and a half become
a cultural event. There are the gifts, parties, songs, carols, traditions, and merry making.
Of course it has been taken over by the
shopping season and the advertising blitz.
Still there is the Christian observance of Advent. But even away from the hopeful intent of the day, there is a type of magic, and even a glimpse of the joy of hope
come to chaos.
People just seem to be more giving, thoughtful and
happy during this season.
So to help you maintain that sense of cheer,
the Weekender :) offers this ditty.
See you down the trail.
