I have amazing memories of Christmas. My Dad was career Navy and because of that we moved around the country – a lot. Most of the places we lived did not have snow. When my Dad retired from the Navy we moved to Boise, Idaho. It was a relatively small town back in the day; friendly people, beautiful mountains, hunting, fishing, and most importantly for me – snow. I celebrated my first white Christmas the first year we were there. It was beautiful to me. Christmas songs took on whole new meanings for me when I listened to Silent Night as the big white flakes seemed to drift from heaven in a quiet and gentle cascade; proclaiming a peace that passes all understanding. Christmas was not controversial back then, in fact we said Merry Christmas to one and all, and in school we had a Christmas assembly where the choir sang carols. It is hard sometimes for me to understand how we as a country have gone so far astray. So, if only for a moment let me recapture that kinder and gentler time and wish each one of you who reads this a very Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones and take the time to wish others the same.
Merry Christmas – spend time with family, stay safe, and remember the reason for the season.
