Special Episode: The Christmas Guest

'Twas the Thursday before Christmas

and we have a poem to share;

To remind us all

of the best gift this time of year.

These next few days as you prepare for Christmas Day – baking cookies for Santa, washing carrots for Comet and Rudolph, stuffing stockings, or making last minute trips to the mall to find the perfect gift for your loved ones – make sure you always remind yourself what this season is truly about.

In this special Christmas edition of Monday Morning Mojo, Phil shares a childhood poem by Helen Steiner Rice entitled The Christmas Guest, which tells the story of a man who is shown what and who truly matters on Christmas Day. Quite often it is far too easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of holiday activities. This morning, we want you to pause and consider the real reason we celebrate the 25th of December.

Happy Holidays!
