How can it be Christmas again so soon? Maybe it's true that as we get older, time seems to shoot past more quickly. Or maybe the holidays and the years all tend to blend together when there are so many to remember ...
Yet here it is again: In just a few days, it will be Christmas Day, 2007.
In this season of joy, this is not a time to discuss controversies here; it is a time of celebration. It's a time to appreciate all of our blessings, and to remember that this season was born in peace and forgiveness.
Also at this time of year, we're appreciative of the many residents and business owners who have placed all the colorful lights and decorations around their homes and where they work. The wonderful displays are truly special to see.
And we'll say this again: While we respect all religions, to us this is always going to be known as the Christmas season -- as opposed to the generic "holiday" season.
It's late December, and Christmas time is near ... Merry Christmas to all!
