A Christmas prayer for 2020,the year that taught us a lot

As the year draws to a close with Christmas being the final festival to celebrate, let’s all remind ourselves of what a tumultuous year 2020 has been. It was the year of many losses and much suffering. But at the end of it , we seem  to have managed to tide over all the hardships. We don’t know if the 2020 disaster shall carry on to the next year. It might or might not but the collective Christmas wish we all can make is to hope for health, peace and happiness in the coming year to dawn. 

2020 has been a difficult year altogether. On the last festival of the year, get close to your family and loved ones. Reassurance is all that we need in the year-end. Healing and love and lots of positivity. Let that be the Christmas present you wish for yourself and wish to gift your near and dear ones. Try writing a small note or letter of remembrance to the ones that stay far but mean something in your life. Let it be known to them that they are loved. Get some time off from virtuality to focus on the pressing realities around. Help with some good cause. The year  has been harder on those that lack the privileges of a good life. Spare a little thought towards them. 

Small gestures of love to the unacknowledged caregivers like that stray dog that always accompanies us in the walk down the dark narrow alley back home late at night , can make the season feel true to the spirit and cheer it brings. Knit him a small sweater to survive the cold on the streets maybe? Or gifting a wholesome pastry to the chotu at the chai stall who gives you an extra earthen pot to hold your steaming hot tea? Let us celebrate Christmas differently this year and make it a habit for the ones to come. Let us celebrate kindness and thoughtfulness above all. 

For the year has been a tough one and has reminded us of what we need the most in such times: harmony and the spirit of unity. That together, we can resolve all hardships that may arise.

Merry Christmas
