We're celebrating the birth of someone a couple of thousand years ago. Experts tell us He was likely born in the spring and may not have even been born in Bethlehem! They tell us that those three kings from the East probably took more than a year to get to the place of His birth. The story has been told so many times, it's hard to tell what happened or when at that first Christmas so long ago.
I don't think any of that is really important. What is important is what that person did and said when He grew up! The guy spent His whole short life preaching about peace and goodwill to all men. He walked and talked with common folks and He told them that all humans should all live peacefully with each other, no matter their race, creed or religion.
We're still working on that 2000 years later!
Take some time tonight or tomorrow to contact at least one friend or family member and wish them a very Merry Christmas! They deserve that, and so do you.
Merry Christmas from my home to yours.
