The Merry Christmas Challenge

I wanted to write this post a few weeks ago, but just kept forgetting. So, under the guise of "better late than never," I'm doing it now. Between this moment and the stroke of midnight that rings in December 26th, say "Merry Christmas" to everyone you come across. Add it after a "thank you." Say it as you pass a stranger. Answer the phone with it. To the checker at the store. The clerk at the gas station. Your grumpy neighbor.

We are celebrating Christmas. Christ's birth. The entrance of salvation into our world. Remind people of that.

With a smile on your face.

As often as you can.

At every opportunity.

Merry Christmas.

We must be sisters from other mothers because I have done that for years. People actually look at me first with surprise then joy. It is a great thing indeed.

No Happy Holidays for me.

Merry Christmas my friend!!!
