I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. ~Charles Dickens
I leave you today with a word of wisdom about Christmas from the great Charles Dickens.
Keep in mind to use this day as a day to help others, especially the less fortunate. For the very fact that you can read this post, check your emails, and woke up this morning with shelter proves to yourself, that without a doubt you are one of the most luckiest men/women in this world. Spread the love.
I'll be performing a special Christmas day show at B Smith's tonight (320 West 46th Street) starting at 6 p.m.
