“….and Happy Christmas to all”

Immortal words from an immortal poem.
There is something comforting and familiar about the generational stories we remember during the Holidays; these phrases that stay with us. The telling and retelling of the Virgin Birth; the seasonal adventures of Frosty, Rudolph and Santa.
Outside of God’s unmatched offer of redemption through the Christ child’s birth, one of my personal favorite reminders of this Season of good feeling is the corpus of Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol. As the Spirit of Jacob Marley chided Ebenezer Scrooge, “Mankind should have been my business“.
Now, when we are particularly tender from the last 2 years of personal and public economic uncertainty, I hope you will intimately remember this message. And like so many business cycles before and following, this time too shall pass. Sincerely, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

P.S. A personal favorite version of A Christmas Carol is the 1951 installment starring Alastair Sim. To buy or learn about this movie click here.
