Happy Holidays 2006

This afternoon I came across a truly revolting locally-produced channel 5 I believe Christmas special filmed at Crocker Park, celebrating what appeared to be 1,000,000s of plastic Christmas lights a-burning, and 1,000s of plastic people a-shopping, and 100s of plastic big boxes a-selling, and that made me appreciate the humble and community-based holiday season I have enjoyed, with peaceful moments of good cheer talking with local shopkeepers I've known in some cases over a decade, wishing them joy for the new year, and hearing the same from them, like friends, and buying local little things, knowing tomorrow they will be truly appreciated, as simple as can be.
I hope all of you, my friends, have had equally comforting holidays, having spread and felt much joy.
