We at Bagattine and Company, Inc. wish you and your family a very happy, healthy, safe and joyous Christmas . It is not Merry Xmas, Merry KMART, Happy Walmart or joyous Sale Days. It is MERRY CHRISTMAS-the celebration (mas) of Christ. Whether one reserves the day as a religious day, or secular, honor it as it is.

It is a special time of the year when we recognize and truly appreciate the meaning of family, and wish that the feeling remains alive and strong twelve months of the year. The belief in the magic of Christmas is handed down from generation to generation. Do not permit “political correctness", and atheistic renunciation of Christ in Christmas prevent you from saying and wishing one: MERRY CHRISTMAS.

It is a time to reflect and search our souls and hearts reaching for what is really important in our lives and as members of society. Kindness toward one another, love for family, tolerance, the belief that there is a God and respect of self- sets the foundation for good and the casting out of evil, bigotry, prejudice, hatred, revenge, apathy, and selfishness.

Be a Santa Clause this season in your special way. Extend your hand, open your heart, show your kindness and generosity and God will do the rest. Give your children, grandchildren and family members the gift of love.

Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah.
