Break bread together and enjoy some wine this Christmas Eve.
Break bread together and enjoy some wine this Christmas Eve.

Today is Christmas Eve and for many people it is a feast day, but it should also be a day of reflection, no matter what your religious leanings are.

It is a good day to be thankful for your family and all the good things in your life. It is a day to celebrate the human spirit, and the joy of love and compassion.

So here is what I want you to do. Get one of those crusty loafs of locally made fresh bread I am always going on about.

Open a good bottle of red wine, gather your friends closely around your table, then break bread and sip wine to the goodness of each soul gathered around your table.

Make sure to pass the bread from hand to hand. Can there be a more meaningful act than this?

Merry Christmas!
