I celebrate Christmas, which could be considered odd as I'm not Christian and I suppose you could say I'm a bit of an agnostic pagan these days. Still, I love Christmas - the actual Christ-is-in-it-Christmas - because it's about a baby. A BABY. All over the world, a great lot of people stop for a day to acknowledge the birth of a child.

Yes, I know that for many folks the main attraction is that the baby was Jesus. Not for me. For me, it's that we're celebrating a new life, creating a divinely-inspired metaphor for new hope in the world. Here is this baby, helpless and recently covered in life-sustaining goop, and we recognize that he is very important. We've all been that new life. That little baby surrounded by family and friends and livestock is all of us, bringing with our first breaths an opportunity to know more, care more, understand more, love more.

Christmas reminds me about what is most important: making a better world for all of the generations to come. Making it kinder, making it more welcoming to the new lives being brought into our shared existence every second. Creating a humankind that we haven't yet figured out how to achieve. One day, they will. I believe that. Peace on earth, goodwill to all.
