Why I love this time of year!!!!

Christmas is my most favorite time of the year and this year,  I am taking the time to pause and reflect on just why I love Christmas.

The real reason I love this time of year is that everyone does their best to be nice.  The world just tends to get a little nicer.  People in restaurants and shops end their transactions with, “and have a Merry Christmas”. And the smiles are genuine. 

 Here’s a thought.  What if we practiced being nice to others all year-long?  What if people on  the subway gave their seat to the elderly, opened doors for others, smiled more, said the three magic words more often -Please, and Thank You.  I can just imagine how this “spirit of nice” would transform our days.  We could replace road rage with smiles and taking turns.  

I hope we meet in 2017.  I look forward to interacting with you with my spirit of Christmas.  Maybe “nice” will catch on.  The world could certainly use it.
