Well Merry Christmas,...Merry Xmas and Happy Holidays EVERYBODY! Happy New Year and many, many more to come.
Some folks have decried the commercialization of this Holiday season over the years, however you celebrate it or call it. I have a very very different turn on it.
The religion has to be there, and so it goes, But for me, Christmas is a people holiday,..but much more, it is a family, and an extended family holiday. Buying and giving presents is exactly what this Holiday season is all about, no matter what the religion or beliefs. Christmas, or Xmas is everyone's Holiday. My bookkeeper is chinese and my accountant is Jewish,...my mail man is protestant and African American and I DON'T ASK. They have been wonderful to me and my family all year, and I have NOTHING religious to say to them,...except MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR as I give them their presents.
And when I do,...it makes me feel really good inside. And THAT'S, to me, what the Christmas Season is all about.
And to all of you who have served to commercialize Christmas, THANK YOU SO MUCH! You have made it possible for me to show, to all those people that I love , in some small way, how much I love and appreciate them.
And if I had an insane wish,..I wish there was some small way that I could give a small present to everyone who ever bought a comic book that I wrote or drew as a thank you.
Happy Holidays EVERYONE!
