Though you may not be a Christmas enthusiast like myself singing Christmas songs in July and putting up your tree in October, it is my hope that somewhere in your heart you save a section where you can carry the spirit of Christmas with you through every circumstance you find yourself faced with, be it positive or negative, in this upcoming year.
“I don’t know what to do!” cried Scrooge, laughing and crying in the same breath; and making a perfect Laocoön of himself with his stockings.
“I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I am as merry as a school-boy. I am as giddy as a drunken man. A merry Christmas to every-body! A happy New Year to all the world! Hallo here! Whoop! Hallo!”
–A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens
