This day is unprecedented in its ability to bring joy and good will to people everywhere in this vast world. We may not share in the same language, culture even belief but somehow the world on this day shares universal joy and goodwill.
No event is perhaps more poignant than that Christmas during the first world war when warring men ceased hostilities and met on the front line to share in the joy and goodwill of Christmas!
As on the next day after this event, hostilities and suffering continues in this world, we all share yet I and many will forget our universal troubles on this day.
I will embrace joy, hope and goodwill to all mankind.
Merry Christmas and have a prosperous new year!
