A Christmas Blessing


From all of us here in the Mission and Culture department:

During this Christmas season,
may you be blessed with
the spirit of the season,
which is peace,
The gladness of the season,
which is hope,
And the heart of the season,
which is love.

Somehow, not only for Christmas
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others
Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart’s possessing
Returns to you glad.

John Greenleaf Whittier
1807 – 1892
