I send you good tidings for a better next year (Jerusalem)
Not for more things, but for time to be here (Trinidad, CA)

And wishes for patience and making amends (Israeli-West Bank wall, painted by Susan)

Tomorrow is Christmas I've said it before (Trinidad, CA)
May you waken to peace and good feelings galore (North California)
May you waken to gratitude and if you're asked how (Russian Montessori class)
Just tell 'em the secret of Christmas is now (Holland, Hugo de Vries)

May you waken to peace and good feelings galore
May you waken to gratitude and if you're asked how
