This magical time of the year, where Christmas lies in front of us, is a season in which we all believe.  Children, their wide eyes sparkling in sweetest anticipation and excitement of what Santa Claus will bring, is their greatest way of believing.  For many, all over the world, to believe is a form of hope.  Something so magical, warm and beautiful is truly a gift from God to each one of us.  I believe we are given this gift of hope in the month of December, so that we will never stop believing whatever may be held preciously in one’s heart.
