The Season

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


For the Christian world Christmas is an important event, but religion aside it has always been that time of the year where families share not only gifts, but also celebrate family itself and the people who are important in our lives. For children there is a magic about Christmas that will last in memory for a lifetime, and for we oldies, beyond all cynicism and the commercialism of the holiday season, it reminds us we have much for which to be thankful.

I wish the HubPages community a wonderful Christmas and a healthy and happy 2013, a year of new beginnings. Whatever our circumstance, we all have a great deal to appreciate, and be thankful for what life has afforded us.


Light

All star-crossed with hallowed light

by night on lonely trail,

we of peace on destined path

do follow oar and sail.

We stood before all empty then

by candles hushed with night,

but now our world is daytime

with but our candle light.


'MERRY CHRISTMAS'

Merry Christmas to you! It is such a special time of year when I just want to hold my family close and let them know I love them. Of course, that feeling continues throughout the year
