Christmas Message for The Blog
There are as many kinds of Christmas observances as there are people who celebrate it – the turn of the old year to the the new one, observance of the winter solstice, a celebration of the birth of Jesus, a chance for families and friends to reconnect in person or with Christmas cards, for retail sales to have a final fling as far as profits are concerned, to celebrate the comforts of home, to share a lavish meal, to sing in Handel’s Messiah, dance in The Nutcracker, follow the progression of the Posada, be generous to the kinfolk – or those you don’t know at all.
The customs that we observe all came from different places, some of them accretions which have little or nothing to do with the miraculous birth of a baby in an inn stable in ancient Bethlehem two thousand or so years ago. But because we are human, and relish some – or all of them as our beliefs, habits or pocketbook allow. And it’s all good, because we are human beings and need our celebrations.
From all of us at the Randy Watson Team at Mission Realty – to all of you; our neighbors, clients and military members serving here and overseas – we wish you the merriest Christmas, the happiest of holidays and the very best of New Years.
–Randy Watson, Merry Christmas 2013!
