Merry Christmas, Everybody

It's that time of year again. The fluffy whiteness outside, the warmth of family and friends, the presents under the tree.

It's Christmas!!!

While Christmas is a religious holiday for some, for others it's a state of mind, or a cultural thing. I have a friend who is Moslem. Her family's been in Canada since the 50s and her husband's family has been in the country since the 20s. They celebrate all of the secular aspects of Christmas, though, including the presents and the "get together with family on the day" because when they moved to Canada, they wanted to fit in with the rest of Canadian society. They even go to the mosque on Christmas Eve (or Day, can't remember which, and besides, they're in Hawaii this year, so they're not doing that).

To all of my friends and family who may be reading this (and I'm posting this today because I figure nobody will be reading this, or Facebook, tomorrow), I wish you a wonderful Christmas and all the best in the new year. However I know you, you are very special to me.
