Is it really two weeks before Christmas?

Yes, friends, it is only 14 days to that big day and will we remember what Christmas really means. Love in the shape and form of a small baby born to two very poor people who travelled far to keep their child safe! When we look into the store windows it is hard to recall what it is all about. At this time of year I try to remember the significance of this Christian celebration.

I will enjoy all my Christmas visitors and their yarns of the years gone by. I’ll dance up a storm with any mummers who happen by and I’ll tip my glass with all of them. I will welcome the looks of wonderment on the faces of my little granddaughters and grandson. I certainly will sit and enjoy the Christmas carols and the lights on the Christmas tree. Most of all I will cherish the special hugs and kisses of family and friends. Midnight Mass will bring back memories of my parents and grandparents, along with earlier years with my three little boys, and I will think of that little baby born so long ago in a manger in Bethlehem.

May all of you find peace, joy and love this Christmas season. Take some quiet time, a walk in the country, a visit to some folk who have trouble getting out and about, a little waltz around the kitchen with your spouse or a lonely neighbour. Remember we are on this Earth to make a difference, and what better way to do that then to invite an old widow or widower over for a nice meal or buy a turkey for a family that is down on its luck?

Merry Christmas from my home to yours this Christmas!
