Will Yours Be A White Christmas?

Unless we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings, all the snow in Alaska won’t make it ‘white’.” –Bing Crosby

Will Yours Be A White Christmas?
I have always loved the magic of Christmas and have lost count the times that I have sat down and enjoyed the “White Christmas” with Big Crosby and Danny Kay! Another classical Christmas movie that I think that I will never grow tired of is “It’s A Wonderful Life” with James Stewart!  These two movies have been how I have felt during Christmas, a special moment despite the horror of war in the case of “White Christmas” and the tough reality of financial difficulty in “It’s A Wonderful Life”. In both cases there was great joy in the end with a spirit of love and appreciation!

Christmas to me has always been a time to reflect on life and love towards others from the time I was a little boy on through my entire life.  We would always plan as a family to do something out of the ordinary during Christmas to bring a bit of cheer in the lives of those we felt less fortunate.  Whilst in Taiwan our kids were into dancing and so my wife put together a show troupe that went all over Taipei performing a Christmas gala.  One year they put together a Christmas musical and performed it in an auditorium for about 600 people depicting the story of Christmas.  It was so much fun!

If you spread this joy, reach out to others, lend a helping hand, Christmas will always be white! It will never be dark dingy and sad! If you give love, you will receive love!  Life is a boomerang, what you give out will eventually find its way back into your life! Christmas is magic, it can bring an unspeakable joy if you were this joy with others and do not seek it for yourself alone.  That is what makes Christmas truly white! As Bing said so well, it is an occasion to share our blessings!

What has it been to make your Christmas white?
