All I want for Christmas is:
To spend time with my loved ones
I find that this one take on a special significance for me this year, as it the first time I have ever spent a holiday away from my family. A lot of times people seem to take it for granted, but for people like myself and those who are in even worse locations, this one says a lot, with a wish for world peace coming in a very close second.
So to all my fellow monks, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May all of your wishes, hopes, and dreams come true in the new year.
