Christmas isn’t about getting gifts, it’s about giving them. Sometimes the gifts can be material, but often the best gifts are intangible ones — in the form of expressions of good will, or sharing a happy memory, or spending time together while holiday music plays in the background.
This sweet and simple story about a Christmas card that was sent back and forth between friends for 60 years, and now is treasured by the survivor, speaks to what Christmas really is all about. We can only imagine the pleasure and good humor that the two friends felt when the holiday season approached and they looked forward to their annual card exchange. The unremarkable and corny Christmas card produced enormous happiness and lasting memories for those two friends.
I hope every one of our Webner House readers is enjoying similarly wonderful Christmas experiences.
