Christmas in Middleburg
Bring your joy and share it. Give your joy and leave it for others. Take some joy away with you and spread it around. That will begin your Christmas season, in love, leading to the peace of Christmas as well, and maybe we’ll all find ourselves saying, “I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” – Charles Dickens, Ebenezer Scrooge, A Christmas Carol.
