Christmas Stockings Hanging over Fireplace

In less than four days the main Christmas holiday will be upon us, and already I have seen, to a great extent that this is still the season for “caring and sharing” even though the sharing portion might be a bit shortened this year by elections campaigns and that several countries suffering from extremely weakened economies.

Still, for the most part, there are several individuals, groups and organisations that continue to make the effort to ensure, especially, the less fortunate groups among us are given an opportunity to enjoy some of those things they would not have had access to during the rest of the year. I pray that the authorities and members of the general public seek to find ways in which they might be able to do more to assist those in the country who might not be able to assist themselves.

From caring and sharing to peace on earth and goodwill to all men, the lessons are there to be learnt. We do well at Christmas and possibly another time or two during the year but, for the most part, there is much to be desired and this holiday season should remind each of us of this and get us to move accordingly.

My family exchanged gifts personally on Christmas Eve. It was a joy to give to others. We did not learn as children that a mythical Santa Claus left gifts for us.
