Host a carol sing…
Play carols for a Seniors facility…
Concentrate on spreading joy wherever I go…

Why?

Because Christmas is so much more than the commercial mess culture has made it and I know the only way I can create new tradition and form new meaning is by stepping out and tangibly putting my heart into motion.

So that’s what I’m gonna do.

What does Christmas mean to Christ and am I representing Him at Christmas?

‘Tis the season for sharing hope, love and joy.
