Merry Christmas Folks

So, the hour of the great nativity is upon us again. Let me grab this moment to wish the two people reading my blog a very Merry Christmas. I know it has been a bit of a bleak winter in our city this time around, but hey, what’s a Christmas feel like without the morning goose bumps?

And while you are at it, check out the very desi version of Christmas wishes. It is an old one and excuse me for the tautology if you have seen it already, but if you haven’t then by golly, forget your end-of-month-internet–rationing (if you still have that kind of thing) and dip into this immense reservoir of pure Christmassy joy!

So, how did you celebrate the hour of the birth of the Son of Man? We have been following a small family tradition since my early days in a Church-Led-School. We sing carols, read chapters out of The Bible, read Psalms. It takes me back to my school days, and memories of Chapel and reading verses there. It takes me away from the dreary trudge that my everyday life has become right now. It takes me backto happier times when I would wake up early every Christmas morning to unwrap presents. 

It was a much simpler and happier time then. How life changes with time…

Anyways. A very Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, may the Lord be with you, just as it has been said in my favorite Psalm, number 23:



So, how do you plan to spend this Christmas?
