Then Bob proposed 'A Merry Christmas to us all, my dears. God bless us' Which all his family re-echoed. 'God bless us every one' said Tiny Tim, the last of all.
Today is Christmas day. And it does not really matter whether Jesus Christ was actually born today or not. That is to say, chronological accuracy has nothing to do with today's celebration. The fact is that a Grand Genius (Jesus Christ) had been born. Who preached the truth (the undiluted word of God). Guess what? the summary of his message was true love. And by the virtue of his message the world has become better. Oh! yes, Jesus Christ is the reason for this season. Thus, as we commemorate his birth. May we spread the peace, hope and true love that his birth brought to humanity. Merry Christmas. ~Emeasoba George
Merry Christmas you assholes!

There is a form of laughter that springs from the heart, heard every day in the merry voice of childhood, the expression of a laughter -- loving spirit that defies analysis by the philosopher, which has nothing rigid or mechanical in it, and totally without social significance. Bubbling spontaneously from the heart of child or man. Without egotism and full of feeling, laughter is the music of life.
