Avoid the Christmas rush— get peace and good will toward all— now. As the holidays come upon us, we experience a kind of joyous anticipation. Even though the weather gets colder, our hearts warm up when we see colored lights and ornaments ushering in the Christmas or Hanukkah season. We begin to think of the gifts and cards we want to give to the special people in our lives, and we decide on a general benevolence toward all. Yet why wait until the middle of December to feel the Christmas spirit? We can decide in our hearts right now to feel peace and joy and wonder at the incredible gift of our life. Don't wait to be swept up into the holiday spirit of excited, happy feelings— let our Christmas joy begin right now— beat the rush. It's always Christmas in our hearts anyway; why not celebrate now?
