Not celebrate?Your burden is too great to bear?
Your loneliness is intensified during this Christmas season?
Your tears have no end?
You should lead the celebration!
You should run through the streets to ring the bells and sing the loudest!
You should ling the tinsel on the tree,
and open your house to your neighbor,
and call them to dance!
For it is you avove all others who know the joy of Advent
It is unto you that a Savior is born this day.
One who comes to lift your burden from your shoulders,
One who comes to wipe the tears from your eyes.
You are not alone,
for He is born this day to you.
