Beautiful gesture. Many people "celebrate" the holidays, each in their own way. As you say, some are alone, and some are are with family, friends.
Some are with family and friends, but still feel alone.
Make it a difference. Hope we all have some fun these days, and will try harder next year. As we always do ?
Relax, the sun will be back in 2½ days, rising... rising - bringing summer, warmth and happiness!

Night Star thank you so much. Of course I"m crying like a baby after reading your reply of the Rainbow Bridge but it's all good, I know he's going to be in a much better place. He too is a cat and he's 13, but male cats do not do good with diabetes. My asthmatic cat lived to be almost 19.
This is a wonderful Christmas film that will encourage people to look at the real definition of Christmas and the reason we celebrate this time of the year. Like so many other Jefferson Moore movies, this one is truly enjoyable for the entire family. Max is a young girl who just happens to have a birthday on the same day that Jesus was born, but she does not like it. She also is not happy that her school assignment is to write about Christmas.
As Jes helps Max with her essay, he also helps the community, her mother and the assistant minister see how important God's perfect gift to us was, the gift of love. It also takes a look at what is happening in the world today at this very special holiday season. That Christmas is a time for kindness and love, not gifts and shopping. And that people need to stand up for what they believe in and not let others that do not believe bully us in hiding the real reason we celebrate Christmas.

The Truth About Christmas
This movie is absolutely wonderful! If you have spoiled your children the way the world says is ok to do, you and your kids have to watch this movie. This little girl has the biggest attitude because she has been reduced to living like normal people, and she doesn't know how to handle it until she's introduced to Jesus Christ, incognito, known as Jess. To make a long story short, after spending a very short time with "Jess", the little girl's attitude disappears and her character has done a 180. Now that's the power of Jesus, live and in action. Every family must see this movie. It deserves 10 stars, but Amazon doesn't go up that far.
It would be like if the whole world threw you a birthday party, and you were the only one they made sure wasn't invited.
