Merry Love

Dear Christ-in-Christmas crew,

This year, instead of talking about the war on Christmas and how devastating it is that a holiday that was originally pagan may be less representative of the Christian holiday priests turned it into, let’s keep Christ in Christmas by focusing on something else: love.

I don’t know if I believe in God, but from what I know about Jesus he was pretty badass in the love department. He wasn’t judgmental, arrogant, or demanding. Instead he was compassionate, kind, and open-minded. Good lord! could we all use a little more of that in our lives!

So this time around, whether it’s “holiday” or “Christmas” to you, lets make it a day of love. So many people are hurting. Whether its from loneliness, hunger, loss of a loved one, war, or disease, people are hurting in this world. Show love by donating your time or money. Take time to really connect to the people around you today, whether its your barista, friend, or crazy aunt. Let’s not forget that the most powerful thing in the world is love, we all have a heart full of it (whether we admit it or not), so let’s share it!

Merry love day!

xo, C

p.s. don't mind my not so-subtle bitterness in the first paragraph. Blame Bill O'reilly's talking points. I really tried, am trying to love here. ;)

  1. You are wonderful and I love this post. You're right. In my (tiny) opinion, it really doesn't matter who you are, what you believe, or how you celebrate, Christmas is be a time of love and giving. Giving whatever - gifts, baking, cooking, time, money, love, affection, cuddles and kisses....

    Merry Christmas, chickadee. :) Hope you and yours are having a wonderful, relaxing, happy day. <3


I adore your notes! Please don't be shy! :)
