Chanukkah and Christmas :Still going Strong! :)

Doozie of the Day my friends:

Can you believe this???

British police have been subjected to widespread derision after appearing to suggest that bumping into someone under the mistletoe without consent is rape.

“If you bump into that special someone under the mistletoe tonight, remember that without consent it is rape,” tweeted Police Service Northern Ireland (PSNI) — signing off with a secular “Season’s Greetings” instead of the traditional “Merry Christmas”.

British Police Warn Bumping Into Someone Under the Mistletoe Without Consent ‘Is Rape’”

Holiday Time. And the insanity begins!

Some free advice.
Don’t let stress ruin your holidays my friends.

Don’t get thrown if misunderstandings between family members increase.
If they really get to ya, sneak away.

Spend some time alone if you like.
There’s nothing like a few minutes of solitude.
Take a walk at night and gaze at the the moon and stunning stars.
Listen to your favorite music.

Have a cookie.
In fact, have two.

You may be sad or lonely if you find yourself without a loved one.

It’s all okay.
It’s all normal.

Just feel the feelings.

No need to manufacture feelings you may not have “just because “tis the season to be jolly.”
Then again, reaching out and helping others is a sure fire way to lift your spirits.

If your’e in a bit of financial bind, don’t fret that “everyone on your gift list be happy” by overspending and feeling anxious afterward.

It’s not only about opening presents, but opening your hearts.

He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
Roy L. Smith

Indulge. C’mon.
Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.

Worries go down better with soup.
Jewish Proverb


Most of all…the biggest challenge of the Season:
Practice forgiveness.

Some of us, especially activitsts and bloggers, try desperately to help light the world. Perhaps, at this time……… we just need to learn how to light up our own lives.

May the lights of Chanukah and Christmas usher in a better world for all humankind.
And may love and light fill your homes and hearts this holiday season my sweet friends.

God bless!

    Hi there! Great reminder of forgiveness. After all, that is why our King of kings was born in the manger.

    Miss reading your posts. Can I get notifications? God bless you always.
