Merry Christmas from our family to yours

Merry Christmas from our family to yours

Today is Christmas day. We had a wonderful time with family over the past few days. A classic Christmas in many ways – shopping, eating and reminiscing. A big treat for me was borrowing a friend’s 8mm projector and viewing family films from way back. I mean way back. The oldest was from 1950 in Paris, but most were from the 60’s and showed a little crew cut Matt running around shooting people with his army gun (violent little guy!). I have been amazed how much things have changed and yet how many things have remained the same. These days we use an iPhone to record images of the family opening presents, not a Super 8 camera. We view the movies on our computers and not on a screen with the images thrown up by a projector. Yet, the images are the same. Family gathering together to share love and faith. We still read the Christmas story from Luke chapter 2 and we still sing the same carols we sang 50 plus years ago. Christmas is still a religious holiday for our family. It is still about the Christ child and God’s love for mankind. It is still about love and hope, about sacrifice and giving. It is a happy holiday.

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Matt, Alou and Jessie too.
