In the hustle and bustle that accompanies this time of the year, may you stop, breathe deeply, and ingest the spirit of the season. This is a season when light fills hearts and we recall that there is meaning and purpose in our lives. We experience the importance of the interior journey and how it connects us to and transforms the world around us. We remember that giving, without expectation, is the doorway to receiving beyond expectation. Mostly, though, we remember that hope conquers every doubt, illuminates every shadow, and heals every wound, if you are willing to let it work through you. Today a few affirmations to help you see the Christmas season with new eyes and new hearts.

Merry Christmas Happy Holidays Debate – The Affirmation Spot for Thursday December 18, 2008

Today’s Affirmation:

“This year I am restoring the true meaning of Christmas to my life.”
(click the affirmation to hear it in mp3)

xmas_sceneIt’s that time of year again when the hearts of humanity warm in the chill of the northern hemisphere’s December air. Choirs can be heard singing, shoppers can be seen scrambling, and people stop for a moment – hopefully – to consider the interior meaning of their lives.

Why must we cloud the cheer and hijack the joy with an argument over words? I have to say I’ve grown very weary in recent years of this great debate between “Happy Holidays” and “Merry Christmas”.

It’s gotten to where I don’t know what well-wish I can offer without offending someone. I just want to offer others a well-wish, but I have to stop and edit myself and consider who I am talking to before I can formulate the proper verbiage. Sometimes I get it wrong.

On the one side, you have people who feel like their religious beliefs are being disrespected by the use of the “politically correct” Happy Holidays. On the other side, you have people who feel like wishing them Merry Christmas is some how pushing religion on them.

Have we become so thin-skinned and inflexible that we cannot accept a well-wish from another human being without feeling affront or turning it into a philosophical debate?

We live in a world where we offer each other far too few well-wishes throughout the year. I look forward to this time of year when people are giving them out as a matter of course.

I will readily accept and return a “Merry Christmas”, “Happy Holidays”, “Happy Hanukkah”, “Happy Kwanzaa”, or fill-in-the-blank. I’m confident enough in my own beliefs and respectful enough of theirs to see the good intention beyond the words.

There certainly are principles worth standing up for in this world. This debate, however, sows nothing but dissention in a time of the year when we should be coming together. Unfortunately, it has become an annual product of those who make a full-time job of creating cultural divides in our midst.

That other person is offering something intended to be kind. Let’s put down our battle armor and accept the kindness. Let’s grow up! Let’s experience the happiness and the wonder of this season. Let’s give up this silly, silly debate and move on to more important things.

It is, after all, the thought that counts.

Stay inspired!

(download mp3 version of this affirmation at The Affirmation Spot.com)

rolling_pin.jpgOne key aspect of enjoying the holidays it to keep your stress as low as possible. During this time of year, we are involved in many parties. You have parties at work, you host parties, and attend friends’ and families’ parties. More often than not you are asked to bring something to eat.

Here is a  stress-free and always popular snack my wife makes during the holidays. She calls it Ambrosia. It is fast to prepare and sure to please.

The recipe

1) Combine the following in a large bowl:

1 cup Cheerios

1 cup Corn Chex

1 cup peanuts

1 cup pretzels

1 cup holiday m & m’s

2) Thoroughly mix the ingredients

3) Melt one package of Almond Bark in the microwave or on the stove top in a medium sauce pan.

4) Pour the melted Almond Bark over the dry ingredients.

5) Stir all the ingredients together until the dry ingredients are well-coated.

6) Spread the Ambrosia thinly on some wax paper.

7) Allow to cool.

8) When cool break into smaller pieces and serve or store in a sealable container.

Everyone loves this stuff and it will save you a lot of time and effort over making a complicated dessert or snack for your holiday parties this year.

 Be peaceful Be prosperous
