Billy Long offers Christmas wishes

(From Seventh District Congressman Billy Long)

It's the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you "Be of good cheer"
It's the most wonderful time of the year
-Andy Williams, It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
This song by Andy Williams sums up how many of us feel about the Christmas season.  It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.  Our spirits seem lifted during this season as we all work to spread holiday cheer to those around us.  
Children eagerly anticipate this time of year because of the gifts they look forward to receiving.  During the Christmas season it is important for us to focus on the ultimate gift, the birth of Jesus Christ.  This gift is the reason we celebrate this special time of year.   
This time of the year many of us reflect on how we can be a better friend and neighbor to all.  The Christmas season gives us a great opportunity to spread love and well wishes to all those around us and to those who are less fortunate in our communities.
Let us also give thanks once again for our Armed Services.  Many men and women in uniform will not be able to celebrate this special time of year with their families because they are abroad protecting our freedom.
May the peace and joy of Christmas be with you and your families on Christmas day and throughout the New Year!
