A Christmas Message from Tony D

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Christmas to me is about family,

and those whom we love,

those with whom we share our lives,

our darkest secrets, our greatest triumphs,

and our deepest sorrows.

Christmas, apart from religion,

is a time we share a celebration,

of life, of love and a gratitude for what we have.

It is not about money,

competition, keeping up with the Jones

or anything else,

other than sharing hearts.

Value in life can only be about people

and their importance in our day-to-day existence.

Christmas should never be a stress,

financial or any other,

but quite often it is,

brought about by a misunderstanding,

a denial of what we have been given in life

and what we then make of it.

This Christmas, don’t fall for all the glitter,

sharing with our loved ones

is all that is important.


Hubpages to me is not only a platform for writing,

but a global community that shares

much of what it is to be human.

With our words, we share so much of ourselves,

connect profoundly all over the globe.

I want to wish my followers and readers,

the Hubpages team and every Hubber on earth,

a joyous Christmas.

And whatever religion, belief or culture,

I pray your life is bountiful,

and you invest in a loving heart.

There is much strife and contention in the world,

but we can make a difference,

living for love.

Merry Christmas!

Tony, I must give you my thanks for writing this. For this year Christmas has indeed been a time of stress. I am not one who likes to be given things but rather one who likes to give and this year I cannot give as much and have been rather down about it. This has helped me look at things differently for the first time a about four years I finally get to spend Christmas with my brother who is in the army. This is what I will think about. Thank you again. Voted up.
