I'm an ol' timer on MM and remember always looking forward to the fun, friendly bantering and Christmas spirit that used to take place on here, so thought I'd start a new blog today wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas, Season's Greetings or Happy Holidays! To me the month of December is something I look forward to. So many are in a good mood, wishing each other the best, coming out of their shells to talk where they usually don't. The "spirit" of Christmas has always amazed me how strangers can suddenly open up, why they'll go the extra distance to be friendlier, help someone out. I so wished we could capture this essence, bottle it up in 12 jars and open a new jar every month to keep that spirit going all year round. None of us really know what is going on in another's life, some may be depressed, some may be jobless, some may be lonely, some may have health issues or relationship issues, etc. I think December is a month to at least try and show some empathy, to extend courtesy, kindness and compassion, best wishes for everyone - at least for a little while. So my hope with this post is that the bickering, name calling and criticism can abate for just a short time. Practice acceptance of each other's differences, show tolerance, show respect and see what happens. If you know of someone who is alone over the Holidays, extend an invite, meet them for a coffee or a meal. The holidays are a very difficult time of year for many, reach out to them. The blogs are always reflective of those blogging, so maybe in the Spirit of Christmas, we can attract some new bloggers with new viewpoints and start seeing a more positive, engaging outcome. I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, hope you're spending it with good friends and family and enjoying what it was meant for. May Santa bring us all what we're looking for!

Quoting Curious2078:

Hey, Barb! How much snow do you guys have up your way? Nothing down here in NE Pennsylvania except flurries that drift away in a few hours to invisibility with the winds. We're hoping here that you guys are so cold that all your rivers and lakes freeze up. NOT because we want you guys to freeze to death, for sure. Just so that your bald eagles all have to fly south to find open waters to fish in. When that happens, we are so overwhelmed with Canadian bald eagles that we are forced to conduct eagle tours along our two rivers. The nominal fee we charge folks to take them in our vans on tours helps keep our business going through the winter. So what's your prediction for the cold this year way up there in Mississauga, Ontario? Any hope for us and our eagle tours?


I don't have much snow where I am, but an hour any direction and they've got a lot. London, Ontario had over 4 ft. a while back, almost declared an emergency. Up near Sarnia over 300 vehicles and their passengers were stranded for more than 24 hours in their vehicles due to road closures, it was an absolute nightmare. It's about -3C right now (26.6F) but clear skies for the Solstice, Full Moon and Total Lunar eclipse occurring tonight for the first time since 1703. Wasn't aware of the bald eagles migration, I'm sure as winter progresses, we'll get our usual cold Canadian weather and they'll head on down to warmer climes. We've been told it's going to be a cold, snowy winter according to the Farmers' Almanac, but who knows, we've been getting off lucky the past few winters, might be due for a big dose of ol' Man Winter this year.

Merry Christmas to all!



Don't bother trying, AZ. Too much total nonsense. Let's just light the lights, sing Christmas Carols--and have a grand old time.

Merry Christmas Arizona! Thanks for stopping by. There was a lot of negativity not long ago, many going off on one another, accusatory posts, etc. I'm thankful it's stopped and that many are back into a positive mindframe, makes the blogs a whole lot more appealing and conducive to new bloggers definitely, just a much nicer tone overall.

Thank you Ready and Merry Christmas to you too. Maybe, as you say, "in the Spirit of Christmas", not only will some new bloggers be encouraged to give some positive contributions, but may current bloggers recognize "fun, friendly bantering" and respond in kind.

Merry Christmas Timberoo! Glad you liked the blog, thanks for posting Bing's White Christmas too, somehow puts you in the Christmas spirit just by listening to it. Best of the Season to you GW! I think many get caught up in making quick judgements when we don't have all the facts, I know I do, so this time of year I make the extra effort to walk a mile in their shoes, consider what's going on for them and smile at them and wish them all the best. It really does feel good! Thanks NGL for your post! It's so nice to see the spirit coming alive on the blogs! I wish you a Merry Christmas too. Season's Greeting to you Conyers! Hope you're spending it with your new friend and having a blast!

Quoting lonelybeachgirl:

Hi Ready,

Doesn't look as though many of the bloggers are in the Xmas Spirit, that is pretty sad.

As always, I am "Dreaming of a White Christmas"! (We don't get snow in SC often)

May your Holiday Season be filled with love, friends, family and lots of GOOD CHEER!

 

 



Merry Christmas lonelybeachgirl! It is sad, not at all what's happening in my real world at all, but maybe the MM'rs are slow to respond, although a few have now. As far as the "White Christmas", I live in the Great White North and will gladly send some your way. We don't have much snow at all where I live, but some places have as much as 4+ feet :(. Love that funny cartoon you posted! Wishing you and yours all the best too!
