Good morning and a very merry Christmas to you!

As I sat watching the ThePolar Express yesterday, I couldn’t help but notice that this movie is far more than simply an enchanting tale about a train ride to the North Pole.

The Polar Express challenges us all – both young and old alike – to never lose our sense of awe, wonder, and fascination. For children, these things come naturally.

Josh Groban’s song, “Believe”, truly embodies this idea. It explains how as adults grow up, we forget what it was like to be a kid and believe in something magical. This loss of awe and wonder is tragic.

We were dreamers not so long ago
But one by one we all had to grow up
When it seems the magic's slipped away
We find it all again on Christmas day

This movie reminds us that Christmas isn't just about gifts, great food and a twinkling tree. It's about love. Building precious memories. Remembering those who aren't with us anymore. Staying true to our traditions, a nod to our past. But most of all, it's about family. Without family, we don't have a tangible link to the past or the future. Without family there is no magic and no wonder in Christmas.

I hope you feel a sense of magic and wonder today, as you celebrate the birth of our Christ and are surrounded by those you love. 

Happy holidays,
