Merry Christmas to you and your family. May you find joy in the day no matter how you celebrate it or spend it.
As a toy store owner, this is one joke that always brought a chuckle during the season...
The winter break was over and all the kids were back in school. The teacher asked them to raise their hands and share how they celebrated Christmas. Every hand immediately shot to the ceiling.
One by one the teacher called on each child, except for Jacob sitting in the back row. She knew his family was Jewish and did not celebrate Christmas. But still he sat there with his hand enthusiastically waving in the air.
Finally, she could no longer put it off. "Jacob, how did your family celebrate Christmas?"
Jacob said, "Well, our family owns a toy store so on Christmas Eve we counted the money and sang, 'What a Friend We Have in Jesus'."
May you all have plenty of money to count tonight and in the weeks and months to come. And may you have blessings upon blessings on your family and your business.
