The spirit of a Merry Christmas

December 24, 2013
By RICHARD WESTLUND , The OBSERVER

Peace on earth; Goodwill to all. Joy to the world! Those are but samples of the spirit the feelings that Christmas in-spires. "By their fruits ye shall know them." Christmas is one of the most celebrated holidays in the world, to the point where it is not just a holiday, but a holiday season. It has taken on many forms of celebration from various cultures that have infused their celebratory ways as they converted to its celebration. The important thing is not so much the form our recognition takes, or how beautiful the tree is, but rather how it affects our spirit, what it does to our own attitudes, how we feel within our individual lives. Today it has become as much of a commercial season as a holy one. Leave it to the merchants of whatever ilk to make the most of an opportunity.
