I wish everyone associated with this web site (a really well done site, by the way) a really good holiday season and an interesting 2006 filled with
good fealings and pleasant experiences. If I have to say it...this includes each and every member and visitor to the site.
IMO Christmas is a world holiday having nothing to do with any particular religion. It has developed over the last 60 years or so to being a two week
period when peoples of all persuasions can be nice to eachother. I reliaze that the way we now celebrate X Mas is the result of the efforts of five
large department stores, an illustrator from the Saturday Evening Post and a popular Newspaper columnist and their commercial efforts simply on
behalf of the cith of New York.
Isen't it interesting how good ideas spread.
I would favor this attitude being applied all year, after all, it is a matter of choice that each of us decides to be gratuitously nice, kinda like
Canadians or Scandinavians or the Dutch.
