December means Christmas, the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. During this holiday season joy reigns supreme throughout this Christian world, for Christians believe that with the birth of Christ came the reforging of man's link with God.
To Jews all over the world, December brings the celebration of Hanukkah, the Feast of Dedication. Hanukkah extends for eight days and is observed as a joyous semi holiday with the giving of gifts to children and the playing of games.
To those of other beliefs, December also holds the promise of the end of the old and beginning of the new. It's a time to forget the hardships of the past and rejoice in the future.
Whatever your beliefs, the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States and its Ladies Auxiliaries wishes you the happiest possible holiday season, and for the coming year, a strengthening of the ideals of liberty, justice and the individual rights of man.
Thomson Veterans of Foreign Wars and Ladies Auxiliary Post No. 6672 wishes you all this, because these are the things that keep this nation free and a free United States is the world's best hope for a future blessed with peace and freedom.
