So This is Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone! My husband and I will be traveling to our daughter's house today so we can spend the holiday with family, but I wanted to leave you with a present first.

I believe the spirit of Christmas is selflessness and love, and here in the Detroit area we have a couple who embody that ideal. They recently took their own money and sprinkled it around $100 dollars at a time to help people down on their luck. Their actions reaffirmed my belief in the goodness of people. Click here to read their story and be prepared to shed a tear or two. I did.

Also, before you leave, check out my post from a couple of days ago: Christmas trees should come with a warning.

Consider yourself warned! Merry Christmas everyone!

Update: Oops, I almost left without mentioning this. Santa took lessons from certain southern GOP politicians this year and wrote the following letter to kids across the land. So much for "Jolly" Old St. Nick.

Thanks for the Christmas feel-good story. But let's not forget, we all helped out some down-on-their-luck folks with hundreds of billions of bailout dollars to banks. Doesn't that warm your cockles?

Merry Christmas...

Abi, I would have liked to see those bankers get coal in their stockings. Ditto the Lions!

Libby, I hope you and yours had a nice Christmas too.
