Merry Christmas to those whose holiday requires a cool civility with family.
May mutual respect and far-reaching bonds make common ground easy to find.
Merry Christmas to those who are separated from loved ones by miles, misunderstandings, or mortality.
May you find the connection you need, whether new, rekindled, or remembered.
Merry Christmas to those who have crafted a bright bauble of bliss to treasure in future memories.
May effort yield joy and gratitude. May exhaustion give way to respite and reflection.
A Happy Holiday to those, in spirit or body, who are shadowed by loneliness, pain, or fear.
May you be a lamp unto yourself, finding your inner strength, light, and joy.
