Merry Christmas!

While possibly the most "popular" Christian holiday, Christmas has also evolved into a secular celebration observed in many parts of the world.

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. ~Burton Hillis

Wishing All of You the Best of Joy, the Best of Cheer for Christmas and the Coming Year

Burton Hillis is the pseudonym of William E. ("Bill") Vaughan (October 8, 1915 – February 25, 1977), an American columnist and author. He wrote a syndicated column for the Kansas City Star from 1946 until his death in 1977.

Amongst his many other folksy aphorisms is this New Year message :

"An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves."
