We all come from different backgrounds and all of us have lived different lives. We all believe in different things. So needless to say, we are naturally different. We find times when we have things in common with others and in those cases, we make friends. Christmas is a time when we all can agree that it truly is a time of "peace on earth, good will to men". The best part of this peace from Christmas is that it is accessible to everyone. Almost everyone is in a pretty good mood and is willing to help someone else out because it's the holidays. Similar to the joy of the holidays, the love of Christ (whose birth we celebrate during this time of the year) is also accessible to everyone who seeks it. That in of itself is truly a gift.
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the year, spend it with those you love!
