In addition to what Bill P. has said.

Merry Christmas to everyone with the hope that all will truly experience
the wonder of the season.

He (Jesus) was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman.
He grew up in another village, where He worked in a carpenter shop until
He was thirty. Then for three years He was an itinerant preacher. He
never wrote a book, He never held an office. He never had a family or
owned a home. He didn't go to college. He never visited a big city. He
never traveled two hundred miles from the place where He was born. He
did none of the things that usually accompany greatness. He had no
credentials but Himself. 

He was only thirty-three when the tide of public opinion turned against
Him. His friends ran away. One of them denied Him. He was turned over to
His enemies and went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed to a
cross between two thieves.

While He was dying, His executioners gambled for His garments, the only
property He had on earth. When He was dead, He was laid in a borrowed
grave throught the pity of a friend. Almost twenty centuries have come
and gone, and today He is the central figure of the human race.

All the armies that ever marched, all the navies that ever sailed, all
the parliaments that ever sat all the kings that ever reigned, put
together, have not affected the life of man on this earth as much as
that one solitary life.

May God Bless each and every one of you in the new year.
