Merry Christmas Everybody

The Christmas Holidays can be wrought with hustle, hassle, frustrations, and impatience.  Try as we might to enjoy the sights, sounds, and fragrances of Christmas, to often the daily world in which we live gets in the way.

Hopefully today, we will be able to just pause and step aside from our daily lives and remember that first Christmas Day. Hopefully we can enjoy the richness of family and friends. Hopefully we can enjoy the sounds, songs, colors, and smells of this special day. Hopefully we can fill this day with the Peace and Joy of Christmas. 

With fondest wishes to everyone reading these words, Merry Christmas to each and everyone of you on this wonderful Christmas morning.

-David and LaDawn 


  1. ..and the Swedish one says "and a happy new year".. not "Merry Christmas".. ;)

  2. Merry Christmas to you and LaDawn, David, and best wishes for a wonderful 2010. Thanks for all you've shared with us this year.

  3. Dutch should read "Zalig Kerstfeest", not "Zalig KerstfeAst". Anyway same to you...

  4. Keyboards outside of Germany have no umlaut. Non-German keyboards spell "Merry" as "Froehliche," but Germans use the umlaut: Fröhliche.

    In that spirit... Fröhliche Weihnachten und ein Glückliches Neues Jahr wünscht Euch!
