Or Merry Xmas even**.  Whenever, and however, we say Merry Christmas, we are  acknowledging the greatest gift ever given.

I hope that, especially in this season,

you know the peace, love, joy, and hope that comes from accepting

what became yours when He gave His life for you.

 May you have the merriest of Christmases

and a truly joyous new year!



[**]The “X” in X’mas is the Greek letter chi (x) and is an actual Greek initial for Christos which is Christ in English.
