For those that celebrate it, for those that participate in it, for those who patiently wait for the rest of us to quit being so seasonally nuts about this holiday.

For unto you a child is born.

Whether you subscribe to the faith that gave birth to this holiday, or the faiths that came before it, or the faiths that will surely follow it (because 2000 years isn't all that much time n the great scheme of things) the message is the same...that child, every child, is the promise of hope.

Hope for a future we may never see. Hope for a people we may never know. Hope for a country that isn't ours.

That's the promise and the gift and the reason behind all the madness. Like the last thing in Pandora's box when you let all the evil and madness, greed and anger loose, there's still this hope. This bright shining maybe.

For my faith, this night (even if it was really in May) is the start of all things that make hope possible again.

To you and yours I would share that with you, I will hope for joy for in the coming year, for prosperity, for finding a miracle, for being one. I will thank you for being lights in my life, for being the gift I still marvel at, for showing there is goodness and love in this world even in the darkest of seasons.

I am blessed, and you my friends, are that blessing.

Merry Christmas.
