I hope Santa has visited you and been very kind bringing you that special thing you have always wanted. Please be careful on this Boxing Day and if travelling to see family and friends drive carefully. Holiday Wishes by Joanna Fuchs We wish for you a holiday
That's better than your dreams,
Filled with peace, good will and hope
And firelight that gleams, Overflowing with holiday spirit
Good food and holiday laughter;
And when it's done, We hope that you
That time of year's come 'round again,
So we wish you all the best.
The joy that comes from knowing you
Makes us feel that we've been blessed. So we'll share with you our feelings
At this special time of year:
May your holidays be a delight,
Filled with happiness and cheer.
