The Night Before Christmas

didn't grow up in Christmas Country, or, as my grandmother put it, with Christmas-People. But I have no issue whatsoever with being wished a Merry Christmas, because if you want to include me in your holiday and wish me well, my heart is gladdened.

“Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.”
Mary Ellen Chase

My wish to all is that on this Christmas Eve, and all the eves to follow, your children are tucked in a warm bed, and all feel safe and loved.


  1. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Seasons Greetings and stay safe and warm! :)

  2. So true, Mirka ... Wishing you the warmest of Christmases as you snuggle with your kitties.

  3. Getting ready to go tuck my kidlet in right now. =) And a lovely pic. I'm partial to tabbies, having had one as my first cat.

  4. Great attitude, Mirka. In high school, I dated a guy who was Jewish and even though I'm not Jewish, I participated in every Jewish holiday that year. It was fun and educational. I loved getting to celebrate other holidays. I tend to just wish people happy holidays instead of saying Merry Christmas because no matter what you celebrate, I hope it's happy.
