The best Christmas ever

If Christmas 2008 were your last Christmas would you:

Be more generous? Drink more eggnog? Spend more time talking about the important things in life? Ask where the gift receipt was? Attend a Christmas Eve service? Rush from mall to mall? Go into debt to buy presents? Tell people the real reason you celebrate Christmas? Volunteer in a soup kitchen? Watch the Los Angeles Lakers play? Make a gingerbread house? Go sledding? Pray for a white Christmas? Watch It’s a Wonderful Life? Go to church on Christmas morning? Cry for absent loved ones? Give thanks? Tear into presents? Write a Christmas letter? Read the biblical story of Jesus’ birth? Trim a tree? Wait in long lines? Tell those you love that you love them? Attend your company’s Christmas party? Take your neighbors a plate of cookies? Thank God for sending His Son to Earth? Work so hard for the perfect family picture? Flip through department store catalogues? Complain and gripe so much? Sing carols? Take your kids to see Santa? Eat fruitcake? Pray for peace? Gather with your family for Christmas dinner? Put lights and wreaths on your house? Care what you received?

No matter what you would do, perhaps the most pressing question would be — would you have any regrets? Especially spiritual ones.

If so, you can change that — there are still four more days to do so.
