Peace on Earth

In Australia, today is a holiday.

It's more than a "Holy Day" here though, it's a strange sort of secularly blended party day as well when people of all religions or those who profess to have none at all, stop, get together and celebrate, perhaps in some ways that aspect can be likened to Thanksgiving Day in other countries.  

Perhaps it's the abrupt halt that comes to the madness that is the commercialisation of the festival, perhaps it's the sudden silencing of every loudspeaker jingling bells for weeks on end and signalling the end of the spending, or perhaps it's something far more esoteric that is the cause, but this day is different to any other.

Peace on earth, good will among men.

Have a Merry Christmas!
