Today, the British wish each other Happy Christmas. In Mexico, the term Feliz Navidad is used. The French say Joyeux Noel. They all sound beautiful. They all sound joyful.

I’ve caught myself saying Merry Christmas to everyone I come across. I say it because I notice that it brings a little bit of cheer for a brief moment. It’s a phrase that connects us to someone else. It makes us feel like we are all neighbors, like we know each other more than really do. It makes us feel that we care about each other and want each other to be happy.

People are interesting things. I write about them and what makes them interesting.
