It’s almost Christmas Day, and there isn’t a great deal that’s new or interesting going on with me and the cats, so I will likely not publish anything on my blog until next week. I will, of course, still read others’. In the meantime, I would like to thank everyone for the good wishes they’ve extended to me and the beasts. In return, allow me to give this electronic version of my Christmas card, the outside and the inside of it.
As the Spirit of Christmas Present said, in my favourite movie, A Christmas Carol (1951), “We Spirits of Christmas do not live only one day of our year. We live the whole three hundred and sixty-five. So it is true of the Child born in Bethlehem. He does not live in men’s hearts one day of the year, but in all the days of the year.” It’s easier said by a Spirit than done by man, but I hope our coming year retains something of the seasonal spirit throughout.
Have a merry Christmas, everyone!
