Happy holidays from TeenHelp! - December 25th 2009, 03:18 AM

Hello everyone,

Today many of you are celebrating Christmas - others of you may be celebrating other holidays - and others still may not be celebrating anything at all. Whatever it is you celebrate (or don't celebrate), I hope you're all having a fantastic time, and continue to do so over the rest of December and New Year! Wherever you are around the World, and whatever you believe, Christmas is a time of peace and understanding, a time to be with those you love, and a time to reflect on how lucky you are. I hope you take the time today to think of those who might be having much harder times this Christmas - those starving, those homeless, those being persecuted, and those at war. A lot of you may also be having problems yourselves, and I think we can all sympathise with that as well. But I hope that the majority of you can at least take solace in the fact that your holidays could perhaps be much worse this year, and be thankful for what you do have rather than regret what you don't. I wish you all the best over the holidays, and may the new year bring you all the enjoyment you both desire and deserve.

I don't have anything else deep to say, so I invite you to check out Craig's Christmas message, which is always an excellent read.

Rob,
On behalf of TeenHelp.

Well said, Rob :] I think you're 100% right. For me, Christmas is a time to forget about all of the problems I may be facing, and realize that I'm blessed to have all that I have in life. I have my Faith, the God I believe in, and my family. To me those are so often the only two things I truly need. I hope that everyone out there, no matter their problems, realize that this Christmas, even if they have nothing more, they have hope. And so many of us are going to be thinking of them this Christmas.
Merry Christmas and, though I don't say it often, God bless all of you!

Have a good holiday season too. =] Also, I love what you guys did to the logo for the holiday season. I don't know if it's been there and I'm just realizing it, or if it just went up for Christmas. But it's awesome Reminds me of the stupid homemade ortaments I put on the tree at school since I think I used all those religions. Just thought I'd bring it up since I'm here. lol



Take me seriously.
I dare you.

Hi Rob!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

That was a beautiful message!!!

It truly is SO very important to think of our lives more as 'glass half full' than 'glass half empty'. It's SO easy to take for granted everything that we've GOT when so many people in this world would think they died and gone to heaven if they woke up tomorrow with OUR lives. [Our bed, our clean water, our food, our shelter, our shoes, our relative safety and so on]

May YOU and your family and friends - and everyone here at TH and around the world - enjoy this special day. And may 2010 be the year that GIVING becomes our purpose in life. For it is when we GIVE that we truly become fulfilled.

GREAT BIG HUG
Craig!!

Just wondering, what religions are represented by the symbols on the TH logo? I recognise Christian, Islam, Ba'hai, Wiccan (?) and Jewish symbols, but what about the others?

The religions from left to right are Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism and Jainism, which are seven of the largest religions in the World.
