Merry Christmas

Christmastime is upon us.

That is very much obvious from the annual nativity scene on the front page of our paper, along with our annual "Letters to Santa" insert.

We hope you take the chance to read through the letters written by local youth. Some will make you smile, perhaps laugh. Others, however, might make you a bit teary-eyed.

Christmas isn't a joyous time for everyone.

Sometimes parents have to pinch pennies. The children might not get everything on their wish list, let alone a filling Christmas dinner.

Or, sometimes there might be a noticeable empty seat at the family table. Family members gather, smile, and partake of dinner, yet remaining mindful of those no longer with us.

There might not always be merriment and joy.

In the meantime, cherish what you have, hold tight to the ones you love, and somehow try to capture the heavenly peace that Christmas can bring.
