Christmas Day

As Henry Van Dyke wrote nearly a century ago, “There is a better thing than the observance of Christmas day, and that is, keeping Christmas…  Are you willing to close your book of complaints against the management of the universe, and look around you for a place where you can sow a few seeds of happiness? … If so, then you can keep Christmas.  And if you can keep it for a day, why not always?”  Why not, indeed.
