Dearest friends and family! Hope you are marvelous, and enjoying this enchanting Christmas Holiday.
INDEED Christmas is here!
In fact, it's beginning to look alot like Christmas in my area---in the state of Maryland; with the lovely white snowflakes [currently] falling from the sky...oh so perfectly! Ahh, what an absolute mesmerizing and gorgeous sight it is watching these flakes steadily fall on to the hedges outside my window, and on to trees, as well as the lawn. Hum, this truly warms my heart greatly, and has left a permanent smile on my face. What a perfect, and wonderful CHRISTMAS EVE!
We at Arious Entertainment Group ("AEG") want to wish you and yours the most loveliest and happiest Christmas ever…a Christmas truly full of Joy and Good Tidings. Our Christmas Card below expresses our sincerest thoughts and special wishes to each and every one of you. (For a larger view, please click on the picture/s below.)
Wonderful Christmas…A time for family, giving and sharing, spreading good cheer, reverence, LOVE, forgiveness and even gratitude; but most importantly it is about CHILDREN. However, my heart has been aching badly due to the dreadful Massacre of the 20 innocent CHILDREN; along with 6 adults that occurred a little over a week ago in Newtown, Connecticut. Sadly these 20 little angels were taken away…their lives abruptly ended by a mad young man who selfishly and violently eliminated them from this world; and from their family and friends.
I, along with America; and many around
the world were pretty shaken up by this devastating incident, which
seems to never leave my mind. Gosh, the enormous feeling of sorry that has succumb
the lives of the parents, siblings, and family of these 20 precious
angels, as well as the 6 adults is undoubtedly EXTREMELY
difficult to handle. Especially since their lovely little 6 or 7 year old son or daughter
WILL NOT be experiencing
the magic and wonder of Christmas.
In fact, these parents' heart will continue to be broken, and
they WILL [of course] be brutally reminded of their child every
moment during this Christmas season, and far…far beyond. We at
AEG mourn with the parents and siblings for their sad loss, and
we send our sincerest condolences!
We at AEG mourn with the parents and siblings for their sad loss, and we send our sincerest condolences!
I constantly find myself asking why! And wondering why no one was able to reach the young man who committed this heinous crime. From all reports he was mentally ill; so again WHY I ask---wasn’t there more done to help him? Additionally, what's most worrisome is the fact that there were guns in the home, [and easily accessible to this insane young man.] Why so many guns, and why was a high-powered weapon among them?
The bottom line is: the madness has to stop, and the killings
of our innocent CHILDREN must end.
Our Children must be protected…THEY ARE OUR FUTURE!
I ask each and every one of you among our on-line family to continue keeping these families in your thoughts; and pray that the pain they are experiencing is bearable during this Christmas season. Indeed, Christmas morning will not be the same for all these families; since they will NOT be hearing that little voice of their son or daughter scream with joy upon receiving what they had wished for, and dreamed of. Nor hear them say THANK YOU Mom and/or Dad.
MAY GOD KEEP THESE LITTLE ANGELS IN HIS LOVING ARMS, AND GIVE THE FAMILIES STRENGTH TO MAKE IT THROUGH THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.
Additionally, let’s keep all the families who are grieving for their loved ones that were selfishly taken away due to the many killing sprees that occurred over this December month across the United States. Even today's fatal shooting of 2 Firefighters in upstate New York (east of Rochester) by clearly a disturbed/insane person is dreadful. However, I thank God that the other 2 Firefighters are recovering from their gun shot wounds. Again, I ask you to say a little pray for all who are suffering from the loss of their loved one.
As I proceed with my thoughts on Christmas, it is undoubtedly the loveliest season! In fact it is THE SEASON OF HOPE, and THE SEASON FOR FAMILY. Families celebrating peace and good will as they spend time reflecting, sharing, toasting, giving, rejoicing … laughing … talking and enjoying every special moment with their loved ones, and close friends. Therefore, please exhibit unconditional LOVE, plus reflect and give Thanks for your families; as well as for all you have, and have accomplished.
Being that Christmas is a global celebration; obviously traditions and customs are different from place to place. However, the festive spirit is the same all around the world. Without a doubt since Christmas is only a few hours away many of you are busy preparing to celebrate the real meaning of Christmas in your own varied and innovative way.
Therefore, whichever way you celebrate; we at Arious Entertainment Group (AEG) sincerely wish you a very happy, healthy and joyful holiday. All of us at AEG hope you have the special opportunity to spend some quality time with your family and friends; relaxing and preparing for a more brighter and prosperous New Year. Additionally, we wish you many blessings, peace, understanding, healing, renewed strength; and GOOD TIDINGS, as well as the HAPPIEST OF HOLIDAYS!!!!
Below, I have continued my annual tradition of pointing out, and sharing with you how the different cultures celebrate the meaning of Christmas…the joy of Christmas; and how it is done in their special and unique ways. Please read and enjoy!
To many the religious significance is the true and deeper meaning of Christmas, and that Jesus Is The Reason For The Season!! Yes, it is said the true meaning of Christmas - A time of God showing his great love for all mankind, and most importantly the celebration of the birth of the Christ Child "Jesus."
“Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ The Lord. Ad this shall be a sign unto you; ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.” –Luke 2:10-12.
M E R R Y C H R I S T M A S
Merry Christmas - God sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to be born. His birth brought great joy to the world. Shepherds, wise men, and angels all shared in the excitement of knowing about this great event. They knew this was no ordinary baby. The prophets had told of His coming hundreds of years before. The star stopped over Bethlehem just to mark the way for those who were looking for this special child. This special child took the form of man to make it easier for us to love him, and because of love for him we love our fellow men.

The true meaning Christmas" Luke 2: 4-19 says: (Courtesy of CBN.net: http://www.cbn.com)
"So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about." So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart."

is celebrated during this special season traditionally from December 26th, 2012 through January 1st, 2013.
Kwanzaa is an African-American cultural holiday conceived and developed by Dr. Maulana Ron Karenga in 1966. Each day of Kwanzaa focuses on Nguzo Saba, or the seven principles- "matunda ya kwanza" which means first fruits, Kwanzaa is rooted in the first harvest celebrations practiced in various cultures in Africa, and it seeks to (1) enforce a connectedness to African cultural identity, (2) provide a focal point for the gathering of African peoples, and (3) to reflect upon the Nguzo Saba, or the seven principles, that have sustained Africans. Africans and African - Americans of all religious faiths and backgrounds practice Kwanzaa.
NGUZO SABA - The 7 Principles of Kwanzaa
Umoja (Unity): To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race.
Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves and speak for ourselves.
Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility): To build and maintain our community together and make our brother's and sister's problems our problems and to solve them together.
Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics): To build and maintain our own stores, shops and other businesses and to profit from them together.
Nia (Purpose): To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.
Kuumba (Creativity): To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.
Imani (Faith): To believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.

Hanukkah begins every year during this special season on the 25th of the Jewish Month of "Kisley and is celebrated for eight days and nights. Therefore, this year Hanukkah began on December 8th at sundown and ended on December 16th, 2012.
The Festival of Lights: Hanukkah is the most widely celebrated American Jewish holiday, possibly because it is a fun, child-centered occasion. It is celebrated with excellent food, exchanging gifts, and lighting beautiful menorahs (special Hanukkah candelabras) filled with brightly colored candles. Unlike some of the other Jewish holidays, which require intense spiritual reflection or elaborate preparation, it is easy to celebrate.
Many Jewish holidays commemorate events invested with historical and religious meaning, and Hanukkah is no exception. Hanukkah means "rededication," and it commemorates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem after its desecration by foreign forces. The celebration also reaffirms the continuing struggle to live by God's commandments and to lead Jewish lives.
When all is said and done, perhaps the most important message of Hanukkah may be found in the name of the holiday itself: Dedication. When Jews have dedicated themselves, through faith and action, to the pursuit of high religious and human ideals, Judaism has been strong. That imperative, to strengthen our religion and our people, remains an important challenge at this season, in every generation.
Please know that whatever is good and lovely, we wish it for you!!! Have a Merry Christmas, A Joyful Kwanzaa, and for all our Jewish Friends, we hope your Hanukkah was lovely and peaceful. And to our all the folks who celebrate Kwanzaa, may your celebration be wonderful.
As you celebrate this exciting, sparkling and spectacular Holiday, from our family to yours below is "A Christmas Blessing." Please read and Enjoy... (Courtesy of John Greenleaf Whittier - an influential American Fireside Poets and ardent advocate of the abolition of slavery in the United States.)
"A Christmas Blessing"
this Christmas season,
May you be blessed
With the spirit of the season,
which is peace,
The gladness of the season,
which is hope,
And the heart of the season,
which is love
Somehow, not only for Christmas
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others
Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart's possessing
Returns to you glad.
