Why We Celebrate

makes me happy.


Kevyn and I had some interesting conversations this holiday season about what Christmas means to us and why we celebrate it.


While neither of us are particularly down with organized religion, we both believe most doctrines offer positive messages to the world. But even more dear to our heart then those words on paper are all those who actually live and spread the word of love,


peace,


compassion,


equality,


and happiness.


In our humble opinion...


these noble souls run the gamut from...


Siddhartha Gautama...


to Mother Teresa,


Rosa Parks...


to Mahatma Gandhi,


John Lennon to


Jesus Christ.


Since both Kevyn and I come from Christian heritages...


we happily honour and celebrate everyone who brings more peace and love into this world...


on the 25th day of December.


Amazing the amount...


of consciousness...


these little wee beings have already brought upon us.

Happy New Year and all the very best to you all.
