"Make it a December to remember!"
I'm not sure who wrote the quote above initially, but Lexus uses it in their television campaign. But, if you think about it, it's the perfect slogan for the last month of the year.
I've always been a huge fan of December, but this year it seems even more critical. Fires, floods, horrible accidents, terrorists, gun massacres and politics makes it time to start wrapping up the year. That doesn't mean the six o'clock news is going to change very much, but at least for today, it's a day of family regardless of your religious beliefs. After all, retail is pretty much closed, so the best place to be is with the people who mean the most to you.
"Christmas is a season of not only rejoicing but of reflections."
Regardless of what holiday you celebrate, Christmas today, Hanukah, Kwanza or anything else, December has always been a time of peace and as hokey as it sounds these days, goodwill towards each other. Sheila and I just came back in from our morning walk, and you could spot each house with kids, because at 7:30 a.m. all the lights were on!
The bottom line is - whatever you're celebrating Sheila, and I wish you a day of peace, love, time with family, joy, and reflection and that your holiday is filled with the magic the month of December always brings.
