It is the season for good will and cheer for all.
Being Christian, I celebrate Christmas. Of course, in recent years it seems like the word Christmas has been replaced by the word Holiday. Merry Christmas is now Happy Holidays ... to be more inclusive of all the celebrations that occur during this season. Sad. I wish political correctness hadn't evolved to such a meaningless point.
Back in the mid 1990s I was the supervisor of a large medical department. We always celebrated with gusto. There was no focus on the religious elements of Christmas, just the Santa theme.
Santa would arrive bringing good cheer for the employees, we had a pot luck lunch in the department. The supervisory staff (there were 4 of us) dressed as Santa's elves for the whole day. I remember that time with great fondness. Nothing speaks of Christmas as much as bringing smiles to the faces of the employees and patients.
Recently one of my former employees found a picture from that time that she shared with me. In the spirit of good cheer, I share it with you.
Hope your holidays (whatever they are) are filled with joy, smiles and good will towards all. And remember, the best thing you can do this season is to pass all that cheer on to others. There seems to be a deficit of good cheer in our world today.
Don't forget! Pass it on.
