By reader request All News PipeLine is providing a thread for the week leading up until Christmas Day.
In the week leading up to Christmas Day some will be traveling, others rushing to do last-minute shopping, still others spending time with offline family - †and here at ANP we wanted everyone to have the time to wish each other Merry Christmas, to share their favorite songs, their poignant thoughts, †and any favorite poems, stories or memories they care to share in the comment section †with those that have become an online family, old and new, here at ANP.
Message from Susan - Stefan and I celebrate Christmas so we are wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and if you are a reader that celebrates something else, we hope that holiday is as wonderful for you, and without getting too political here, I firmly believe that everyone should have the right to celebrate their holiday without being told it is "politically incorrect."
Message from Stefan - In this rapidly changing world we live in, we all should take the time to remember and appreciate the things that are really important in life, family, friendship, love and faith and the other precious things that really matter to us - that tie us all together as compassionate human beings no matter our race or religion. Over the past year+, we've witnessed the growth of a wonderful new family here at ANP. Susan and I feel completely blessed and we thank all of you for joyfully participating and sharing your knowledge with us. Humanity will overcome the forces of darkness that continually work against us.
With that said, we would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
