One of my favorite Christmas books is “The Grinch Whole Stole Christmas” by Dr. Seuss.
Here are my favorite few lines:
And the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow,
Stood puzzling and puzzling: "How could it be so?
It came without ribbons! It came without tags!
"It came without packages, boxes or bags!"
And he puzzled three hours, `till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before!
"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn’t come from a store.
"Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!"
Maybe I’m just a little bit of a sap, but I think that there is some magic to Christmas. And that it doesn’t come from a store.
As we make this last push towards Christmas, let’s focus on more than the packages, box and bags.
