The stockings have been hung by the chimney with care ... and all across Northeast Michigan residents wait in eager anticipation.
On this Christmas Eve, 2011, we share our Christmas greetings and wishes with readers.
For most of us, this has been a year filled with both joys and heartaches, highs and lows, triumphs and tragedies. Yet through it all we never lost faith in our fellow neighbors, that good always prevails and in the end, the golden rule of "doing unto others as you would want done unto you" still is the best philosophy to follow in life.
Christmas is a time to celebrate, to reflect on our blessings and to look to the future with anticipation and confidence.
It is a time of hope. It is a time of promise. It is a time of love.
Whether it is the twinkle in a little child's eyes this day, or the wink from a wrinkled brow, Christmas Eve, and Christmas, are both magical and miraculous.
"For unto us a child is born. For unto us a son is given." - Isiah 9:6.
Peace, prosperity and blessings to you and yours this Christmas!
