If only there was a way to retain the Christmas spirit throughout the year

It’s not a coincidence that people act differently at Christmastime.

Psychologists will say people are more stressed out, depressed, rude and hurried, and while that may be true it’s also true that people are more conscientious about treating others more nicely.

If only this same spirit could be retained throughout the year throughout our debates about healthcare, immigration reform and all the other issues that always fiercely divide people.

Recipe for Christmas All Year Long
By Joanna Fuchs

 

Take a heap of child-like wonder
That opens up our eyes
To the unexpected gifts in life–
Each day a sweet surprise.
Mix in fond appreciation
For the people whom we know;
Like festive Christmas candles,
Each one has a special glow.
Add some giggles and some laughter,
A dash of Christmas food,
(Amazing how a piece of pie
Improves our attitude!)
Stir it all with human kindness;
Wrap it up in love and peace,
Decorate with optimism, and
Our joy will never cease.
If we use this healthy recipe,
We know we will remember
To be in the Christmas spirit,
Even when it’s not December.
