Merry Christmas to You and Yours! These are the magical words we hear around us this time of year. We begin using them just after the Thanksgiving holiday. It is believed that an English admiral first used the term “Merry Christmas” in an informal letter, way back in 1699. Merry means pleasant and we are happy to wish all a pleasant Christmas during the happy celebrations. What better way than to give our family and friends a reminder of these wishes.

Christmas is the most widely celebrated festival in celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ and is the season for giving. It is the time to spend with family and friends, for sparkling lights and brightly decorated gifts. Christmas is for love and sharing gifts and cards has become a sort of universal way to communicate joy and good wishes. Let us freely express the love and best wishes this festive season to all of those around us.
