Hope you are having a lovely day :D

"There are many things from which I might have derived good by which I have not profited, I dare say," returned the nephew. "Christmas among the rest. But I am sure I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round -- apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that -- as a good time: a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time: the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. And therefore, uncle, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it!"

From A Christmas Carol

I was just referring to the post itself, which struck me as a non sequitur. One might think you are not really a fan of Christmas time - surely not ? :lol: Bah humbug! :D

I strongly suggest that you read A Christmas Carol, including the ending, and the role of the nephew in the story.

You will then understand that this was a message of genuine good will.

Following a report , the mods have re-read the original post and none of us can see anything other than genuine good wishes for Christmas.
