Merry X…omething!

Merry X… what??

Season Greetings, Merry Christmas, Merry Hannukkah, Merry Winter Solstice, Merry Yuletide, Merry Saturnalia, Merry Anything!
Just be merry, and of good will. Anything is a good occasion to celebrate and to do good.

Personally, I am an atheist, but I do not particularly resent the above religious celebrations, on the contrary.

What I resent is the wild commercialisation that runs along what used to be a spiritual event.

That may be easy or trivial to say, but I am trying to resist the rush to buy expensive presents and gluttony.

I will stick to simplicity, and try to speak with open heart to whom I love.
In fact I have just put in the earth some small daffodil bulbs that I saved at the end of last spring. In a couple of months my balconies will be alighted with a lot of yellow and green.
Everything dies and come to life again, over and over.
