Merry Christmas . . .

As my child ages and divorce and split homes settle in to the norm . . . I have not really missed much about Christmas (it was always pretty secular in my family anyway) but this year finds me living with a Christian who loves her some Christmas and I might just have to get back in the swing of peppermint-flavored, chocolate-covered everything.

THIS ad - and the spirit of the holidays it seeks to grow - makes me cry every time. EVERY. TIME. If all Christmases were this great and focused we'd all be better off.

You have to watch it all the way through.

Merry Christmas from this Jew to all of you!
