Merry Christmas and the very best
of the season to you and yours!!
Time was with most of us, when Christmas Day,
encircling all our limited world like a magic ring,
left nothing out for us to miss or seek;
bound together all our home enjoyments,
affections, and hopes; grouped everything and everyone
round the Christmas fire, and make the little picture
shining in our bright young eyes, complete.
– Charles Dickens
