The secret to enjoying Christmas can be expressed in two words: lower expectations.
If you don't expect too much, Christmas will not disappoint - and in fact it may delight you. But you mustn't get your hopes up.
And it seems to me this rule becomes even more important as you get older and you've seem more of life. Scale back and remain open to the simple pleasures of the season: old friends, good food, family time (in moderation, of course) and whatever else comes your way.
On this Christmas I wish everyone good health - body, soul, heart and mind. Merry Christmas!
