As for the origin of holidays, I'm definitely not very smart.
I am a Catholic Christian, speaking simply from my heart.
Concerning Christmas and Easter, we have been doubly blessed.
We have experienced the great Love of God made manifest!
Christmas is the holiday that celebrates our Savior's birth,
The day God chose to send His Perfect Love to earth!
On Easter we remember the gift of His life, death, and resurrection.
We wait with hope in His return, with His Holy Spirit our connection!
As our Blessed Mother Teresa shared concerning love for God,
Be faithful in your service to Him wherever you may trod.
Whether you are Hindu, Christian, Muslim, or Jew,
The Creator of us all holds us with His Love so true!
