[2/365] On Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas ! Christmas have always been associated joy. For me, the word Christmas triggers my mind to conjure the ever smiling face of 'Santa' with white beard. Seeing endless Christmas movies on lifetime channel during my brief US visit did not help the case either. I am now a believer in Christmas miracles and yes, in Santa too :) Christmas is all about the joy of giving. I have always been a believer in small acts of kindness. What goes around comes around.



But recently, my faith in good will has been on a trial stand. When you see darkness all around, it is difficult to believe in light. Is it really worth to be honest and good in this big bad world ? My mind seems to be asking this a lot these days. A world where your most innocent words get dissected on various levels and get twisted around to arrive at most ridiculous conclusions, how much long can one hold out ? I am not sure. But all I hope is I do not succumb to the temptation of following the norms, becoming one among the many.

    1. I believe in miracles now, out of sheer hope that so many film makers cannot be wrong :P On a serous note, Christmas has been a long tradition and it could never have survived if not for some miracles here and there..

  2. First of all, Merry Christmas to you and your family..
    And a happy new year as well.

    No matter what, I feel that good will always come victorious even with all the darkness all around and with the diminishing hope. As you said, what goes around comes around. Keep up the good faith, and you get that in return. Umm.. Its the Christmas spirit, is it not ?

    Anyways, Take Care. :)
    And I see you are planning to write one post each day of the year , is it so? I read the previous post and then when I came to this I realized you are doing that. Great, indeed. (I have said enough, #OkBye)

  3. Best of luck,
    Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me

    Let the words comfort you, and give you strength when everything outside is falling apart.

    Cheers,
