This sign is one of the gifts I received this Christmas

Wouldn't life be worth the living
Wouldn't dreams be coming true
If we kept the Christmas spirit
All the whole year through?

4th Day of Christmas, December 28th.

If you ask 10 people what the Christmas spirit is, you'll probably get 7 to 8 different answers. Going beyond those different answers, there is something that makes people more selfless, more friendly, more kind, and generally much nicer people at Christmas. 

To me it is that selfless action that brings people together. There is nothing quite as sweet as the love of your family and friends, and celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, the ultimate giver.

Everyone deserves to feel that special Christmas feeling, nothing can compare to it.  

Christmas is a time to open our hearts to God and his gifts.  Just like the rest of the year.

I was able to spend Christmas with my son, daughter-in-law and grandson. So I am one grateful Mom and Grandma. God bless you.

So true! I love the way people tend to be nicer and more thoughtful of others around Christmas. Too bad it isn't always like that. Love your new sign :)

That is an interesting sign, Ma! I think you described the Christmas spirit pretty accurately! Now to carry it on through to the new year!
