On the 6th Day of Christmas

My true love reminded me of what Christmas is really all about...

Ridiculous exercises in consumerism such as my 12 Days of Christmas list sometimes make us forget what Christmas is all about. It's not just an excuse for a public holiday, excessive amounts of food and drink and the receiving of gifts.

Christmas to me signals new life, generosity of spirit, charity, humility, hope and the simplicity of love. As we run around the shops at midnight worried about last minute gifts, and stress about certain family interactions we think we'd rather avoid, it's nice to keep in mind that we have the luxury of such stresses. What to buy? A first world problem indeed.
