Merry Christmas – There, I Said It by Bill Roberts

Merry Christmas everyone. As they say, Jesus is the reason for the season.

Unfortunately, there has been great pressure to say “Happy Holidays” or even “Season’s Greetings.”

But, Thank God, this year it seems we can say Merry Christmas again.

Hallelujah 

Christmas is my favorite holiday. It is my wife’s favorite holiday. It is our whole family’s favorite holiday. And remember, the word “holiday” means holy day.

I have been binge watching Christmas movies on Hallmark channel. Even though they are all the same. Chick flicks. Formulaic. Boy meets girl. They become close. Boy loses girl. And in the last few minutes, boy gets girl back.

But the movies are beautiful. Lots of Christmas decorations. Lots of Christmas music. And lots of good cheer. I could do without the snow, but apparently they can’t. Oh well, it is Christmastime after all.

So, Merry Christmas, and to all a good night. I hope Santa brings you exactly what you want.

Now I could use a large eggnog, but  guess I will settle for cold coffee.

Ho Ho Ho

Hi Mike McCann - Nebraska Farm Land Broker I sure hope you are right. I'm about to write my New Years blog "2018, The YearThat Wasn't."

But, in any event, Merry Christmas.

And 2019 is going to be an awesome year.

Hi Alexandra, There is nothing I would like more than just staying home, but my wife's large family EXPECTS us to participate in their plans, whatever they may be.

Merry Christmas to both of you.

Bill, there hasn't been that much about saying Merry Christmas, thankfully.  Watching the Hallmark movies has been fun.  Hope you had a wonderful Holiday.

Hi Joan Cox Yes, I think that "war" is over, and we won.

Since we were busy my wife wanted ALL the Hallmark movies recorded, so we are still watching them.

Thank you.
