I think it should be a holiday, but if it isn't I am not going to blow a gasket & just because not everyone celebrates it should not be a reason not to make it one cause not everyone celebrates Christmas, but the world completely shut downs for it & is thankful for a day off...
The heart can't lie... Truth is... I love you!!!
