And, definitely, a very happy New Year — to those happy enough to have a Christmas vacation!
Let it be better than the passing one. Kinder, more peaceful and fruitful. One of the great old Romans said, amor vincit omnia. Though it hasn't won yet, let us hope that love is more powerful than hate, that our life is meaningful.
And if you do not celebrate now, like me — as a child of the traditional Orthodox culture, I celebrate Christmas on January 7, — or just because you belong to another religion, just let them be glad and joyful, for whom it is a holy (or not that holy, doesn't matter) holyday. In my opinion, this would be a real tolerance.
Merry Christmas to you, people!
