Keeping Christmas

Let me not wrap, stack, box, bag, tie, tag, bundle, seal, keep Christmas.  Christmas kept is liable to mold.  Let me give Christmas away, unwrapped, by exuberant armfuls.   Let me share, dance, live Christmas unpretentiously, merrily, responsibly with overflowing hands, tireless steps and sparkling eyes.  Christmas given away will stay fresh—even until it comes again."

--  Linda Felver, "Let Us Not Keep Christmas"
