Come All Ye Faithful

 As the season of ho ho hos and mistletoes and Christmas music ensues, the air still lingers with sadness and uncertainty.  People crowd to and fro on the streets of New York city, striking jolly poses before the Christmas tree as though all their worries have been frozen by the cold air.  I guess this is what this season is all about.  It's the hap-happiest season of all.  Not because everything suddenly becomes flowery dandy, but because people look to embrace the little things that make them happy for once.  Whether it's decorated trees, or holiday cards, or snow, or just hot chocolate, the season brings cheer because it stresses ideals of benevolence and serenity and love.  Happy Holidays :)
