I don't need anything myself, but I'm praying for better economic times for a lot of friends and family who are struggling.
Merry Christmas to all at the C&V Forum. You are truly some of the best people I've never met.

Her parents are good, hard-working people but just don't make enough to do more than survive in SoCal. It has given me a very different outlook on the whole "present" thing this year.
My friend, it sounds like YOU deserve presents more than most. This little girl will always remember and appreciate your kindness and generosity. Thanks, on behalf of all of us, for making this world a better place.

Wow! Very inspiring & encouraging. Thanks for sharing.
Seems to me you have figured out what Christmas is about.
May you and the recipient(s) of your kindness be abundantly blessed.

Thanks. I am increadibly blessed. A beautiful wife of almost 35 years, two awesome sons in college, a good job, nice home and health that allows me to enjoy them all. And I do know what Christmas is all about and it ain't Santa.

Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas, or equivalent, and continued blessing to those who have them to share and blessings to those who need them. I am thinking of the unemployed (been there, done that, too many times in the last 12 years), or those scraping by or barely maintainging their own (future at risk).

Chombi - I don't think many people get that reference to a Festivus pole.


As for me, I think I'll imbibe - em, abide in the spirit of the season!

In an attempt to reverse the grinches, I would like to also wish all my fellow C&Vers a wonderful and safe Holiday season. Some of us have been on here for numbers of years, and we spend this time usually with our family and friends after our holiday well wishes. Well, this year has been one that I couldn't have imagined for myself. And during trying times, one discovers and cherishes the genuine kindness and compassion that still exists among us.
This Christmas will always be a special one to me. The outreach from the members and my friends from this forum has brightened and uplifted my spirit at the ending of this personally pivotal year. Hard times are still ahead for my foreseeable future, but I have the willpower to face them. I will be spending my Christmas alone for the 1st time, but thanks to you folks, I will be surrounded by good company and sincerity in spirit, and I will not feel lonely.

Merry Christmas to all, and in the words of that saccharine little gimp, "God bless us . . . . everyone."

And a suggestion: As Christmas Eve night is probably the quietest and most beautiful point of the year, grab your favorite bike and go for a short ride in the night. Enjoy the stillness of Christmas Eve.

Happy, happy & Merry, merry to all my friends here on C&V. You are all wonderful! Thank you all for the way cool pictures, stories, helpful tips and info. I could use a large box of 50.00's but really, I got both of my kids home for the holidays and they are wonderful, so what else could I want?
