Merry Everything

This weekend when I was a #SundayLibrarian, a young lady (third grade or so) was making a card for our librarian Ms. Jan who just retired. (We have a little craft station set up so the kids could make her cards.) She was working on it when she suddenly stopped and asked me, "Does Ms. Jan celebrate Christmas?" I told her that yes, Ms. Jan does celebrate Christmas and she said, "Okay, I'm going to draw a Christmas tree on her card."

I guess I'm just always impressed when anyone (especially here in my fairly religious and conservative Southern Indiana community) DOESN'T assume that everyone celebrates Christmas. And especially when that person is a kid. Way to be thoughtful, kid!! I celebrate Christmas secularly, so Merry Christmas Eve! if you celebrate and Happy Nonfiction Monday! if you don't (or if you do!). And either way, I hope you can enjoy one of my favorite B-side Christmas songs (for the sentiment, if nothing else).

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a safe and happy holiday (AND/OR a safe and happy last week of 2012)!
