Possibly a title for a follow up article on this special day would be "You've opened up all of your Christmas presents--what will you do the rest of the day to share your blessings with others?"

Mark--you don't have to be devout Christian to celebrate and observe what all of the great religions share as one of the tenets for living your life--share your blessings with others. Most all of us in this community have so much to be thankful for.

As Tiny Tim prayed, "God bless us, every one!" Now, as we've all been blessed in so many ways. Yours is a good reminder to be a blessing to others.

Well that's just super! It wasn't until the third or fourth century that Aurelian chose the 25th as the festivalof the birth of the invincible sun. Then some years later Pope Julius decreed it Christ's birthday so really it's just the sentiments behind it that count.
