A Simple And Beautiful Christmas
Ignore the negative attitudes that suck the joy out of life, push to one side the rampant commercialism and find a way to deal with the materialistic and environmental downside.
Just for now.
Because Christmas can be a magical time of year for many and a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the beauty that surrounds us.
Remember though, it is often the simple things that mean the most. A hand written Christmas card, carefully created by a child’s shaky hand and proudly delivered with love. Perhaps a well-chosen gift, beautifully wrapped in colourful and festive paper. Or a decoration for the tree, passed down through the generations and hung every year with fond and happy memories of previous celebrations.
They all help to create the colours and patterns of Christmas joy and excitement. The routines and traditions that so often remind us of our parents and our own childhood. A rare opportunity to remember a world that seems more innocent and so much kinder than how we live now.
So take it all in. Let it fill your heart. See everything and leave nothing out.
Make that Christmas magic happen in the way that you want it to and smile at the crackers and the jokes, the candles and the music. Be kind and share well with everyone, especially those that are without.
And enjoy a simple and beautiful Christmas.
