What has changed? Well, for me the technology has changed dramatically. The close feeling of Christmas is still there, but in some different forms.
We love visits from friends and family. It is wonderful to sit around and share some food, friendship, love and laughter. We are grateful for the cards we get and for the emails and text messages people send. We are happy to pick up the phone and hear a Christmas greeting from a familiar voice. It is good to phone someone and hear their loving voices and wish them Christmas Happiness and love.
We are pleased that we deal with our human greediness by limiting the value or number of presents we give. We are happy to see that some deserve more than others. Not everyone has equal needs.
I still feel that Christmas at its heart is about being grateful and sharing love and wealth. Sometimes we still have to work at delivering what we believe and self awareness and self acceptance helps us do just that.
Marianne and I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas.
