And if you can't be with the one you make peace with
Make peace with the one your with...
Somehow doesn't have the same ring!
To my Jewish friends I say Happy Haunuka
To my Arab friends I would say Happy Ramidan
To my Pagan Friends I would wish a Happy Solstice (even though I'm not sure that would be a proper greeting).
You see I believe America is a great melting pot where one can be a welcome member of the community without losing ones heritage or being forced to minimize it. This is a problem when every Dec. 25th comes aroung and I see Happy Hollydays or some such nonsense. For me it is Christmas! You are all cordially invited to attend regardless of your belief. Because what this is all about is one person (in my religeon, God) loving his people so much that he sent us the greatest gift that anyone ever could, a gift of himself and a gift that in the end would bring us all together.
You don't have to be Christian or American or anything special to share a holiday that is based on love, giving, forgiveness and understanding.
My house is open to you all. Please partake of the love and friendship. All my best and Merry Christmas!
