Christmas Spirit

“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.”  

That was Calvin Coolidge, U.S. President through the 1920’s. His world must have seemed tumultuous to him, even as ours does to us. But every year we get the same reminder: that the real spirit of Christmas persists, in spite of what the nightly news tells us. Do your best to hold onto it.
