So, here we are with yet more great Christmas reads from some of our wonderful writers. It never ceases to amaze me what a deep well and wide variety of writing creativity were have here on Illumination. There have been so many different takes on the theme of Christmas, clearly showing that it means something very unique for everybody.

For me personally it is a time of happiness and joy, a time of good food and wine, but most of all, a time for family and friends to get together and rejoice in the lives that we are so fortunate to live.

Of course, the pandemic has put us all in an onerous position. However, the human spirit will always rise above anything that tries to restrict it, be it conflict, illness or loss. For me personally it has been a challenging year with a move to a new continent and a panoply of serious health issues. But I am happy to report that I am finally resolving those issues and look forward better days. I will not allow my past hard times to define my future.

For those of you who might be passing a difficult time please remember one thing, All Things Must Pass. With that I wish you all a very happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Finally, please do have a read of the terrific contributions in volume one of this collection of Christmas related articles, stories and poems. And feel free to send me a link to your own efforts on this subject so that I can add to this post. Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to you all.
