The Meaning of Christmas

For centuries men have kept an appointment with Christmas.
Christmas means fellowship, feasting, giving and receiving,
a time of good cheer, home. ~ W.J. Ronald Tucker

Christmas is upon us, with all the Christian and secular traditions that mean something different to everyone. What does it mean and how is it different when a disability is involved?

To find out what Christmas means to different people, I posed two open questions on Yahoo! Answers tagged for the People With Disability Group. One question asked for a least favorite thing, and the other asked for a favorite thing about Christmas. The answers were generally things I expected but with a few exceptions.

I will definitely have to go check this out.

I must say...you are one amazing woman. I love how you have taken your experience of having this disease and you use it to give back. That is very special in my book.

It was a delight to have interviewed you this year. You absolutely make a difference in what you do here.

I do wish you and your family a very happy holiday. My best to your this new year.
