Christmas is a Very Special Time of Year

There is no other time of the year that even comes close to being similar. To children, the Christmas season is magical. It’s a time in their lives when memories are made that will live forever.  Even when we become adults, those Christmas memories, especially if they are caught in photos or video will bring smiles to our faces. It’s one of the good things in life; happy times to cherish forever and pass on to new family members as they grow.

The brilliantly lit Christmas trees and neighborhood homes, the gifts, the pageants, the music, the movies we look forward to year after year, the time spent with family and good friends and the image of Santa everywhere you turn adds to the tradition that so many people hold so near and dear to their hearts.

That it was all started with the birth of the Baby Jesus more than 2000 years ago is the reason for the season and makes this time of year not only festive, but also sacred to more than 2 billion people around the world and certainly to the people of South Boston. From all of us here at South Boston Today to our friends and neighbors, have a Merry Christmas. May this year bring good tidings to one and all.
