Christmas is the season of peace. It overtakes us every year like some kind of unexplainable euphoria just about the time the Thanksgiving leftovers have run out. The weather turns colder, we decorate our homes, pumpkin is (finally) replaced with peppermint and Nat King Cole sings our favorite Christmas carols once again. Christmastime swallows us up in acts of giving, extensions of kindness and singing songs of joy, hope and peace.
And it really doesn’t make any sense.
