Around this time of the year, the lines are drawn: There are those who will go dashing through the snow, and those who run and hide; some who will totally reject the idea behind Santa Claus and others who overlook the spiritual aspects of Christmas.  Whichever you are, just remember we’ve all been given the same gift of life on this earth.  A precious gift that begins to fade away the day it is opened.  Use your time wisely and don’t forget - no matter how you spend your Christmas, do it with a smile on your face and a tolerance for others’ perspectives in your heart. Remember, in the end, we are all the same, just packaged differently.
