Whether Christmas is a time of religious worship or a festive celebration, it is to be enjoyed in the company of family and friends.
Of course, that is not possible for everyone. Holidays can be particularly difficult times for those who have lost loved ones or are separated from them this holiday season. It is never too late to reach out let them know they are not alone.
Many generous people have already dug deep into their pockets this year to help charities meet the rising demands on them. Others are volunteering their time. May their actions serve as a beacon for the rest of us during this holiday season and into the new year.
