"As December days grow short and the nights grow long and cold, Christmas is a bright beacon that warms every heart. Thoughts turn to loved ones, far and near. Anticipation grows as gifts are bought, wrapped, and hidden away until the big day. There's something to do every day - decorations appear, plans are made, and cards are sent. As family and friends and the faithful gather to celebrate in their own way, they discover that the very best gifts of the season - peace, generosity, and benevolence - last long after the holiday."
