It’s that time of year again — when we learn to forgive ourselves and each other for all the negativity we’ve inflicted on our world. Battles go on at our borders, fires rage on in our forests, and famine sweeps off our country folk. Tomorrow would be the same—our environment, our reality, and our lives will all remain the same—but now’s not the time to worry. Now’s the time to wish all joy to the world.
Today we celebrate our love for humankind, forgetting the hatred and the jealousy that shroud us during the rest of the year. Today, we wish each other—today I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Tomorrow would bring normality back into our lives, but until then, I raise my glass to you.
