This year as I attempt to avoid the holiday craziness and to some extent the holidays all together, I can’t help but think that maybe this year, Christmas might mean a little bit more, by spending more time just remembering Christmas’s past and enjoying the simpler moments. No big parties and no shopping malls and lots of packages, rather, more quality time with friends and family, messages of thankfulness attached to small tokens of appreciation and moments of quietness and reflections of the holiday season and the true meaning of Christmas.
“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”
― Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
