Just wanted to take a moment to wish all of those that visit good ‘ol Duckburg a “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Holidays!” I’ll be enjoying the holidays with family and friends over the next 2 weeks and I hope you good folks will have the chance to enjoy some time off work, school, etc. to spend with loved ones as well. It’s been a tough year for most of us in one way or another and it appears things aren’t necessarily going to shape up anytime soon, but here’s hoping we can all find something to smile about (consistently) and that we’ll allow that happiness to spur us on into better days ahead.
In the meantime, the hope for many of us this Christmas as Linus is so good as to remind us each year in the classic Charlie Brown Christmas special:
“And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” – Luke 2: 9-14
