From the mind of critic: “If holiday spirit causes humanity to ooze from our actions this time of year, have we ever wondered why? Is it because we think of family, and all want to be close to them? Do we believe nobody wants to feel unloved, because we sure don’t? Do we give to the poor, because nobody should go without, or freeze their butt off this time of year? Do we smile more, wave more, love more, sing more and care more? If all great things that make us human are heightened this time of year, we must ask why. If we ask ourselves that honestly, we’ll get an honest answer. Once we have that honest answer, we’ll see that the only thing stopping us from having that warm feeling all year, is us. Whether it’s Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, something else or nothing at all, we’re all human and wanted to be treated as such. The more we remember that, the more problems we’ll solve. Which is something we all wish would happen year round.”
