Is there such a thing as “An Arizona Christmas”?
I don’t think so. There can only be an Arizona flavor to the style of celebration we choose to honor the birth of our savior.
Christmas, for me, means acknowledging an incarnate savior powerful enough to build a universe, not one that can be contained within any boundaries we can define. A Lord powerful enough to hold your hand regardless of what anyone else thinks of you.
It is a time we set aside to remember all the good things, to forgive and forget past immoderations, ours and those we’ve suffered from others. It is a time to find fresh hope as through the eyes of a newborn with all possibilities open.
It’s a time to remind my family that I love them (yes, you too, Cuz.), and to tell my friends how much they mean to me.
