Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone. No, I am not a day late.

It is often hard to differentiate between the secular celebrations of Christmas that fill our cities, towns and communities and the Christian celebration of Christmas. Frankly, I don’t mind calling what I see in town halls and shopping malls holiday.

For Christians, we are now, beginning on December 25 and ending on January 6 or Epiphany in the Christmas season. And so, today and for the next 10 days, I want to wish you, your loved ones and all in your communities a very merry and blessed Christmas.

Let us keep the good will and wishes for peace flowing for the 12 days of Christmas and throughout 2006.
