Merry Christmas 2016 From Way Too Damn Lazy To Write A Blog

Here at Way Too Damn Lazy To Write A Blog, we are tickled to have made it through another year. Feel very lucky in many ways, even if we did not receive one of those exclusive invites to time travel over to Harold Lloyd and Mildred Davis Lloyd's house for a festive Christmas party.

Or find that Clara Bow in a Santa outfit is soon to arrive bringing plenty of good cheer - which we can always use - from the next world.

Prompted by a thoughtful Christmas season post he read on social media, Your Correspondent notes a few important things as the holidays commence and traipse, sometimes stumbling, towards New Year's Day. To paraphrase said post:

It is important to remember that not everyone is looking forward to Christmas. Not everyone is lucky enough to be surrounded by wonderful families and friends.

Many have no one to spend these times with and are besieged by loneliness. Others face the holidays out of work, stone broke, wondering how they will make ends meet in the new year and worried about the future.

In all families, there are times of feeling overcome with great sadness when remembering loved ones who are not with us.

This can be particularly difficult when the first Christmas without a particular loved one takes place and especially for those who lost family members and friends at Christmas time.

We all need caring, loving thoughts right now.

If possible, give a moment of support to anyone struggling with family/relationship problems, health struggles, job issues, financial woes, chronic physical pain and worries of any kind. Let 'em know that someone cares.

Extend a kind word or gesture.

Remember those in need and do what you can.

A shared laugh is good, too.

And with that, Way Too Damn Lazy To Write A Blog wishes all a Merry Christmas and completes this post with a few apropo and inevitable Yuletide film clips.

A beautiful sentiment--and so well illustrated. Wishing you peace and happiness in the new year, Paul!
