What does the Holiday season mean to you? I celebrate Christmas myself, and I'm not a religious person. Honestly, I'm tired of the "buyme-buyyou" attitude, and I sincerely hope within atleast the next few decades (yes it'll probably take that long) peoples thoughts of this time of year changes. I'm a firm believer in that this time of year is a time to relfect and be thankful for the things you have done to make your own life and others around you richer. It's a time for family and friends, and as long as you have a bit of that, you'll have all you need. No Ipods, No XBox's, No Designer clothes. Just people you love. I will always remember the last few lines of Suess' classic, which I think embraces this time of year very well;
"Christmas Day is in our grasp so long as we have hands to clasp. Christmas Day will always be just as long as we have we. Welcome Christmas while we stand, heart to heart and hand in hand."
