I don't read newspapers or watch the news. And about a decade ago I made a choice to give up celebrating the major holidays. I could cite at least twenty reasons for this decision, but I will tell you just this: since I have learned to appreciate and be thankful every single day, it is counterproductive within our Spirit to make one day a day of thanksgiving. And since I have learned to live from the heart, every day is Valentine’s Day. Now that grace and love are my focus, I don’t need something like one day of the year called Christmas. It’s about freedom and creating new paradigms.
