Peace On Earth and Goodwill To All

It this time of year that we reflect on all that has happened this past year and to give thanks. However, for many it is not a time to rejoice, it is a time of loneliness, their families may have moved and left them behind, their family or spouse might have pasted away leaving them without any close relatives or their children might be at their in-laws for this holiday, for whatever the reason, it is a lonely time.
This year I will be going to cousin's house for Christmas and my brother and sister-in-law's children are at their in-laws this Christmas.
For many in the LGBT community it is an especially lonely time,
So let us open our hearts and doors to them and invite them to the table.
I leave you with this Christmas song by Nat King Cole - Chestnuts roasting on an open fire.
An American traditional songs...
And a cute little video...
