A Christmas Greeting to America and my friends across the internet

To my friends in the United States of America and across the nations of the world, Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year - 2007. And this includes but is not limited to my friend, James Highman at Nourishing Obscurity, for goodness sake....Merry Christmas to the so very spoiled men in my life who make me laugh and bring me joy across the ethers. Christmas Day - December 25, 2006 - is drawing near, soon to usher in the New Year - 2007. The United States of America is a nation founded in Liberty and Freedom. The rock upon which this nation breathed its first breath was the rock of Judeo-Christian principles and values: Loving God, having no other God before Him; Loving thy neighbor as thyself; Honoring thy Mother and thy Father; wives and husbands honoring each other; parents loving and caring for their children... A song that I was taught as a child keeps playing in my mind - "Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world: red and yellow, black and white; they are precious in his site. Jesus loves the little children of the world." Our Christmas Season is predicated upon Christianity, the birth of the Christ child, Jesus, the Star in the East, the manger, Mary, Joseph, the Wisemen, the shepherds, the humble animals keeping watch. And this is the season of Hanukkah, the Jewsih holiday commemorating the rededication of the Temple of Jerusalem after its defilement by Antiochus of Syria - with the menorah, a candelabrum that is used in Jewish worship. Merry Chritsmas and Happy Hanukkah to you - you have made my first six months of blogging exhilarating; you have welcomed me into your lives across the ethers of the internet. You have enriched my life. Thank you. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a Blessed New Year - 2007. Enjoy the season of Christ's birth and when the peacefulness is done, when you have become rejuvenated by the love of family, friends, and our great nations - roll up your sleeves; get to work; educate yourself to the dangers within our gates that threaten us and our freedoms; and hold your elected representatives to count: e-mail them, call their offices, write them through snail-mail. Let them know that they work for you!!!! Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to our troops; may God keep them close to His grace... And blessings to the families of our men and women in uniform and undercover - you are in the prayers of a grateful citizenry...

Merry Christmas to you and yours, and may 2007 be one of change--the change that you and so many others are helping effect.

Since Night Rider is toasting you with Eggnog, I'll do so with some fine red wine, so as to cover all toasting bases.
