My dear brothers, sisters and friends,
I have been doing a lot of research lately on festive occasions that happen around the world and in United States in particular and one unique thing strikes my eye and that is every festive day is designed to be celebrated with dear and near ones. Not one festival is for one individual to celebrate. Once we understand this fact of life that happiness happens when dear and near ones unite then there would be fewer problems in this wide world. That said let’s move on to the events and emotions of the week.
Season’s Greetings [Dec – Jan]
Every celebration is preceded by hearty anticipation. Such anticipation is what hypes up the event to come. During the anticipation process one needs to reassure each other and be supportive. That is where the Season’s Greetings come in. You can send the greetings to your loved ones and let them know of the season that’s ahead and your wishes for the same. It makes them feel good to be thought of and brings happiness to their day.
Simple gesture means a lot to most people. Our greeting cards are a simple gesture but the effect it has humongous.
Happy Holidays [Dec – Jan]
Christmas is here… Well, almost. I can already hear the jingle bells ringing. There is a happy song heard in every street corner. There are green trees to be seen through every window of the house. The eyes are longing for white Christmas while the kids out and about in anticipation of the big day. Advent is on the way too. The holy day is as important as any other and this holiday is celebrated with the same fervor. Hanukkah… The festival of lights is here. Light the menorah, play with the dreidel and feast on latkes and sufganiyots. Celebrate the spirit of Hanukkah with friends and family. All in all happy holidays are here. Enjoy the moment until it lasts.
Christmas Card Day [Dec 9]
Santa is important so is the Christmas tree. Church visit is mandatory so are the decorations. A good lunch and a fantastic dinner is the order of the day and so is the get together of near and dear ones. Fun to be had is compulsory and so is music and drink. Well, everything has its place on a Christmas Day but the Christmas Card Day is as important and relevant ahead of the Christmas. It means the arrival of the big day and the card sent means love transmitted electronically. Send it across and spread some cheer.
Every birth is special but to be born during the season of joy is even more special. I wish one and all whom have their birthday sandwiched between all these wonderful events a very happy birthday. Delirium is what happens when joy hits infinity. There is every chance that you will achieve that during this beautiful season.
I wish you loads of love, luck and joy.
