Here's a great speech by an outstanding American during a time of unrest, violence, hate and, yes, hope.
Martin Luther King: A Christmas Sermon On Peace - 1967
Jesus said to his disciples:
Jesus explains well what it means to be a good follower of His; a good explanation of one type of Cross He has asked us to bare. Also, for those of us who dare to call ourselves Christian it’s a good example of how to be a ‘bleeding heart liberal’.
I would like to wish everyone who reads me a beautiful Christmas that nourishes both body and soul.
For all who celebrate Hanukkah please have a joyous holiday filled with light, family and friends.

If you're Christian the religious nature of the holiday shouldn't be forgotten in all the confusion and gaiety. I really like this little video. When we celebrate the birth of Rev. Martin Luther King we are not remembering little baby Martin but his whole life and legacy. Similarly, we shouldn't be recalling only the nativity story but the whole of who Jesus is and how he fits into our lives.
The Reason for the Season
It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.
